Oklahoma's Jack Mayfield Named Big 12 Pitcher Of The Week

Jack Mayfield, Oklahoma, RHP, Fr., 5-10, 167, Del Rio, Texas/Del Rio
Mayfield became the first OU freshman pitcher since 1976 to toss a complete-game shutout in the Bedlam Series, as the No. 14 Sooners defeated Oklahoma State, 6-0, on Sunday. He did not walk a batter and surrendered just five hits along with his seven strikeouts. Mayfield led OU to its first shutout of the Cowboys since game one of the 1993 series in Tulsa. In his first career start, the Del Rio, Texas-native retired the first nine OSU hitters and faced the minimum in six of his nine innings. Mayfield threw 23 first pitch strikes to the 30 batters he faced en route to posting career highs in innings, strikeouts (7) and pitches (117).  His previous longest outing was a 3 2/3 relief effort against KSU on May 2. - From Big 12 Sports.com
