Boyce Named SEC Pitcher of the Week
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas right-hander Charley Boyce was named the SEC Pitcher of the Week on Monday after earning two wins at Alabama this weekend.
The Broken Arrow, Okla., native threw 2.2 innings on Friday night to pickup the victory and came back on Sunday to throw a complete-game five-hitter.
Boyce threw 11.2 innings in his two appearances in Tuscaloosa and allowed just three runs – two earned – on nine hits. He struck out nine and walked just two on a grand total of 155 pitches.
The SEC Pitcher of the Week award was the first for the junior out of Tulsa Union High School. The win on Sunday for Boyce was the 26th of his career, tying him for second place on Arkansas’ career wins chart. He also ranks fourth in inning pitched (299.2), tied for fifth in career starts (42) and is just six strikeouts from moving into the top 10 in that category as well.
Boyce has a 10-6 record this season with three saves in 23 appearances and eight starts. He leads the team in innings pitched with 91.1 and has a 3.55 ERA. He is tied for second in the SEC in wins (10) and fourth in innings pitched (91.1).
It is the second straight week an Arkansas pitcher has been named SEC Pitcher of the Week. Nick Schmidt won the award last week after throwing a complete game against Florida.
The Razorbacks host Ole Miss in the final regular season games this weekend at Baum Stadium.
