COLUMBIA, S.C. – Jay Brown from the South Carolina baseball team has been named AgSouth Athlete of the Week.
In his second career SEC start, the senior right-hander pitched a season-high 6.1 innings and combined with a pair of relievers to face the minimum in Sunday’s 2-0 victory at nationally ranked Vanderbilt to help the Gamecocks clinch the rubber game of a three-game SEC series.
Brown did not walk a batter and allowed just two singles. He also did not allow a batter to get past second base in the entire outing. It was the third longest outing in Brown’s career at Carolina.
Combined with a pair of relievers for a two-hit shutout, the first time since 2005 that Vanderbilt had been shutout at home in an SEC game. The loss was only Vanderbilt’s third of the season at home.
