South Carolina junior right-hander Sam Dyson has earned SEC Pitcher of the Week honors following his six-hit complete game shutout as the Gamecocks defeated Arkansas 5-0 on Saturday afternoon to clinch a three-game SEC baseball series at Baum Stadium.
Dyson limited the Razorbacks, who came in ranked second in the league in hitting and runs scored, to six hits and walked two on the afternoon. He struck out eight batters and went to three three-ball counts in the game.
He is now 5-4 on the year.
This is the second time this year that Dyson has earned SEC Pitcher of the Week honors. He also earned the award after he hurled a seven-inning complete game shutout in a win at Georgia on April 25.
This is the fourth time this year that a Gamecock pitcher has earned SEC Pitcher of the Week honors.
