Junior Nathan Culp
May 2, 2006
Mizzou junior Nathan Culp was named the Big 12 Conference Pitcher of the Week, as announced by the conference office on Tuesday. Culp recorded a three-hit shutout over Baylor last Friday night, striking out seven and recording his eighth win of the season. It is the second time Culp has earned the Big 12 Pitcher of the Week award this year.
Culp allowed just one hit through eight innings on Friday and did not allow a walk. He retired 10-straight batters at one point and the lone baserunner between the fourth and eighth innings reached on an error.
His first Pitcher of the Week honor came on April 4 after Culp shutout Kansas the previous weekend. In that victory, he also allowed just three hits, facing the minimum through 7.2 innings, striking out five and walking just one.
Culp's eight wins are second most in the Big 12 Conference and his 2.65 ERA is second-best in the conference. He is the only pitcher in the Big 12 to have recorded two shutouts on the year.
Along with Culp's two Pitcher of the Week selections, two other Missouri players have earned conference honors as junior Max Scherzer was named the Big 12 Pitcher of the Week on Feb. 28 and sophomore Jacob Priday earned the Conference Player of the Week on March 14.
Missouri will take on Missouri State tonight at 7 p.m. in Springfield, Mo. before taking on Illinois State at 3 p.m. on Wednesday in Normal, Ill. The Tigers return to Taylor Stadium this weekend for a three-game series with Mississippi Valley State. That series will get underway at 6:30 p.m. on Friday.
