Walker Powell named C-USA Pitcher of the Week
For the second time this season, Southern Miss right hander Walker Powell is the Conference USA Pitcher of the Week.
He takes home the honor for his dominating performance on Friday night in which he threw his first ever complete game shutout against Old Dominion.
It took the junior just 97 pitches to get the job done, allowing just three hits and striking out six.
Powell shares the award with Florida International’s Logan Allen.
Now that 11-0 win is just a part of USM’s recent resurgence that has the Golden Eagles at 15-6 overall and 6-0 to start conference play.
The Black and Gold have won 11 out of their last 12 and they’re doing it with offense, having scored more than seven runs per game during this current stretch after putting up less than five during their first nine games.
