ATHENS-----University of Georgia pitcher Robert Tyler has been named the SEC Freshman of the Week, the league office announced Monday.

A 6-4, 210-pound native of Cordele, Ga., Tyler pitched nine scoreless innings in two appearances last week. He tossed eight scoreless innings in a combined shutout of Georgia Tech last Tuesday in Athens. He held Tech hitters to a .074 average (2-for-27), allowing a pair of singles and got a no decision. He pitched an inning of relief this past Sunday in a win over Western Carolina.

Overall, Tyler leads the club with a 0.93 Earned Run Average in five appearances including two starts. In 19.1 innings pitched, he has 15 strikeouts and only two walks with opponents batting .157 against him.

Tyler’s next action will likely be in a starting role against 24th-ranked Mississippi State this coming weekend at Foley Field. Georgia’s SEC rotation will be announced later this week.
