COLUMBUS, Ohio – Tanner Tully, a left-hander on the Ohio State baseball team, has been named Big Ten Freshman of the Week, the conference office announced Monday. The award is the first for Tully and the fourth Big Ten weekly award for a Buckeye this season.
Tully pitched 12.0 scoreless innings, striking out six to pick up victories over Xavier and Michigan State in his first two career starts this past week. After tossing 5.0 scoreless innings in a 10-3 win over the Musketeers Wednesday evening, the freshman left-hander threw 7.0 shutout frames in the Buckeyes’ 1-0 rubber game victory over Michigan State Sunday afternoon. Tully sits at 3-0 on the season with a 0.96 ERA.
The Buckeyes, 15-7 on the season and 2-1 in Big Ten play, take on Indiana in a three-game series starting Friday at Nick Swisher Field at Bill Davis Stadium.
