Aaron Nola named SEC Co-Pitcher of the Week

From LSU Sports

BATON ROUGE, La. – LSU sophomore right-hander Aaron Nola was named SEC Co-Pitcher of the Week Monday by the conference office in Birmingham, Ala.

Nola shared the honor with Ole Miss junior right-hander Bobby Wahl.

Nola, a Baton Rouge native, fired his second consecutive complete game and his first career shutout Friday night when he blanked Alabama, 5-0, in Tuscaloosa. Nola limited the Tide to just three singles while recording one walk and 10 strikeouts. He threw 110 pitches, and after allowing a leadoff single in the sixth inning, he retired the final 12 Alabama batters of the game.

The shutout was LSU's first in an SEC game since Kevin Gausman blanked Tennessee on May 13, 2011. Nola also became the first LSU pitcher to record back-to-back complete games since Gausman defeated Vanderbilt and South Carolina over the final two weekends of the 2012 regular season.

Nola leads the SEC in strikeouts this season with 82, and he is 7-0 on the year with a 2.15 ERA. He is No. 4 in the league in wins, No. 4 in innings pitched (71) and No. 4 in opponent batting average (.193).
