Tully Earns Big Ten Freshman of the Week Honor
May 13, 2014
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Tanner Tully, a left-hander on the Ohio State baseball team, has been named Big Ten Co-Freshman of the Week, the conference office announced Tuesday. The award, which is the second Big Ten Freshman of the Week honor for Tully, is shared with Michigan left-hander Brett Adcock.
Tully pitched a complete-game shutout, scattering seven hits while striking out three and not walking a batter in a 1-0 win at Michigan Friday night. The outing marked a career best in innings pitched for Tully, who threw 117 pitches, 80 for strikes. Tully became the third Buckeye to pitch a complete-game shutout this season and leads the Big Ten with a 1.79 ERA.
The Elkhart, Ind., native has allowed just six walks in 80.1 innings pitched this season, ranking second nationally with 0.67 walks per nine innings and 11th with a 7-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Tully has pitched at least 7.0 innings in all seven of his starts in Big Ten play.
The Buckeyes wrap up their non-conference schedule with a 6:35 p.m. contest Tuesday at Nick Swisher Field at Bill Davis Stadium.
