Sandlin honored after weekend pitching performance

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

University of Southern Mississippi right-hander Nick Sandlin dominated the University of Texas-San Antonio Saturday in a 12-2 Conference USA victory at Pete Taylor Park.

Monday, the junior from Evans, Ga., was honored for that performance.

Sandlin was named C-USA Pitcher of the Week after tying allowing three hits in seven shutout innings that included tying a career high with 14 strikeouts and walking only one.

Sandlin also was named Louisville Slugger National Player of the Week by Collegiate Baseball.

It was the second time in five starts that Sandlin had been selected as C-USA Pitcher of the Week and he became the first Golden Eagle to win the honor twice in one season since Jamie McMahon in 2015.

Saturday, Sandlin retired the first 10 Roadrunners in order, striking out the first five batters of the game and eight of the first 10. He struck out the side twice.

In 34 innings pitched this season, Sandlin (3-0) sports a 1.32 ERA with 55 strikeouts to three walks. In five starts, he has allowed no runs three times.

Fifteenth-ranked USM (14-4) will put a six-game winning streak on the line at 6 p.m. Tuesday when it hosts Southern University (6-12) in the first, midweek game of the season at Pete Taylor Park.

Sophomore right=hander Walker Powell (1-1, 3-94 ERA) will make his fifth start of the season after coming off one of the best starts of his career. Last week, Powell allowed no runs over a career-long six innings and striking out a career-high six batters in USM’s 12-2 victory at Tulane University.
