Feb. 17, 2014
FORT WORTH - Junior left-handed pitcher Brandon Finnegan has been selected as the Big 12 Pitcher of the Week for his performance in a 5-0 win over Jacksonville on Friday. The honor is the first of his career.
Finnegan tossed seven shutout innings, allowing three hits, three walks and striking out a career-high 13 batters. He dominated the first time through the order, fanning eight of the first nine batters he faced, including seven in a row. In seven innings, he faced just 27 batters and didn't allow a runner past second base.
The Horned Frogs return to the diamond Tuesday night against Northern Colorado. In two of the three national polls released on Monday, the Frogs are ranked No. 19 in the country.
