After big performances vs. Western Carolina and No. 18 Georgia, Kentucky sophomore closer Chris Machamer was named SEC Pitcher of the Week this afternoon.
Machamer did not allow a run in 5.1 innings in wins over the Catamounts and the Bulldogs, yielding just three hits, striking out seven and issuing an intentional walk. In Kentucky’s last 10 games, the right hander is 1-0 with six saves in seven appearances and riding a 13.1 scoreless inning streak, with three hits allowed and 14 strikeouts.
Tomorrow, the Bat Cats will travel to Louisville for a midweek rivalry showdown before hosting No. 1 Florida this weekend. Prepare for that exciting slate by watching this clip of Machamer’s big save on Friday night:
