Arkansas Manatt Named SEC Pitcher of the Week
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – After striking out seven Mississippi batters in a career-best 7 2/3 innings during Sunday’s season finale, University of Arkansas sophomore Jared Manatt was named Southeastern Conference Pitcher of the Week in a Monday announcement by the league’s media relations office.

Manatt, a left-hander from Sheridan, Ark., held Mississippi scoreless through six innings and allowed just one run (earned) on six hits while issuing just three walks and tying a career high with seven strikeouts in his longest outing as a Razorback. Arkansas defeated the Rebels 8-1 to complete a two-games-to-one series victory and knock Mississippi from the eighth and final spot in this week’s SEC Tournament in Hoover, Ala.
