USM’s Walker Powell named Conference USA Pitcher of the Week
The big positive from USM’s trip to Starkville was a dominating performance from Friday night starter Walker Powell who has been named Conference USA pitcher of the week.
In game one against Mississippi State, the junior righty went seven and two-thirds scoreless innings with no walks and two strikeouts. He retired nine Bulldogs on first pitches and didn’t allow a single runner past second base in the contest.
Powell came away a no-decision in the extra innings walk-off victory.
