Ty Culbreth named Big 12 pitcher of the week

Posted February 29th, 2016


For the first time in his four seasons, Texas senior Ty Culbreth is the Big 12 pitcher of the week.

The honor is not a surprise after Culbreth worked eight scoreless innings with 12 strikeouts in Saturday’s 9-0 romp over Stanford. Culbreth carried a no-hitter into the seventh before giving up two singles.

On the season, Culbreth is 2-0 with a 0.69 ERA and 16 strikeouts.


On Tuesday, Texas (4-3) plays on the road for the first time at Texas State.
