Athens, GA. --- University of Georgia junior Michael Palazzone has been named the Southeastern Conference Pitcher of the Week, the league announced Monday.

A 6-2, 197-pound native of Marietta, Ga., he tossed eight shutout innings in beating #14 Arkansas 3-0 this past Saturday for his eighth win of the year. It marked his fifth victory over a ranked opponent this season and was the first time the Razorbacks had been shut out this season. Palazzone faced 29 batters and allowed just four hits with no walks and five strikeouts. Sophomore Tyler Maloof pitched the ninth for his NCAA-leading 15th save.

Palazzone, who is an Academic All-America candidate as well, leads the SEC with 80 innings pitched and ranks among the league leaders with an 8-1 record and 2.14 ERA in 11 starts. He is a perfect 6-0 with a 1.74 ERA in the SEC this season. Overall, Palazzone has worked at least seven innings in nine consecutive starts. The only two starts he didn't were the first two outings of the year in February when he was on a pitch count.

Palazzone is the third Bulldog pitcher to be honored by the SEC this season, joining Alex Wood (March 14) and Maloof (April 4).

Georgia (24-21, 13-8 SEC) returns to action Friday for a three-game league series at Auburn (23-21, 9-12 SEC).
