Gray threw eight innings of three-hit shutout baseball in the Commodores season opening win over Niagara last Friday. He did not allow a runner to second base (only one in game) until the eighth inning and struck out eight batters with just one walk. His eight inning performance was the longest outing of any hurler in the conference over the weekend.
Dating back to last season, the right-hander has not allowed a run in his last 17 and 2/3 innings with 21 strikeouts and just two walks while giving up 11 hits.
The is Gray's first pitcher of the week award and second SEC weekly honor. He was named SEC Freshman of the Week last April after recording a win and a save against Florida.
The Smyrna, Tenn., native will make his second start of the year this Friday at UCLA at 8 p.m. CT. The game is part of a round-robin tournament that also features games against USC and Oklahoma State.
