Varnadore named SEC Pitcher of the Week

Auburn's Derek Varnadore was named SEC Pitcher of the Week after a 13-strikeout, two-hit shutout of Radford on Sunday.

The right-hander, who transferred from Chattahoochee Valley Community College, allowed only four baserunners against Radford, none of which advanced past second. His 13 strikeouts were the most by a Tigers pitcher since Chris Bootcheck struck out 15 against West Virginia in 1999.

Varnadore is 2-0 in two starts this year, allowing five hits, three walks and no runs. He's struck out 17 in 16 innings.
