Wynkoop Earns Second Straight SEC Freshman Of The Week Honor
April 29, 2013
Columbia, S.C. - For the second consecutive week, South Carolina freshman left-hander Jack Wynkoop has been named SEC Freshman of the Week. Wynkoop followed up a solid performance last week with seven scoreless innings in a 4-0 victory at No. 2 LSU in the rubber game of a three-game series at Alex Box Stadium on ESPN. It marked the first series loss by the Tigers this year. Wynkoop never reached a 3-ball count in the entire stint and limited the Tigers, the second ranked offense in the league, to just five hits with no walks. Wynkoop combined with two other Gamecocks for the six-hit shutout.
It marked the fifth time a Gamecock has been honored in the SEC weekly awards.
He is now 6-2 on the year with a 2.66 ERA in 47.1 innings.
