Texas Tech’s Micah Dallas Earns Big 12 Newcomer of the Week Award
Monday morning (May 20th), the Big 12 conference released their final baseball awards of the season. One Red Raider freshman picked up his first ever accolade after his superb performance on the mound against TCU on Thursday night.
Micah Dallas pitched his best game of the season, tossing seven scoreless innings in the opener against TCU. The freshman hurler did not allow a base runner to reach third, and matched a career-high with eight strikeouts in the contest.
The opposing pitcher in that game, Nick Lodolo, was named Pitcher of the Week after he threw eight shutout innings of baseball against the Red Raiders to go along with 13 strikeouts in the TCU win.
Next up for Micah Dallas and the Red Raiders, they will head to Oklahoma City as the 1-seed in the Big 12 tournament. They will take on 8-seed Kansas State on Wednesday, May 22nd at 12:30 p.m.
