LSU right-hander Paul Skenes was named the Southeastern Conference Pitcher of the Week for the second time this season. He previously received the honor on Feb. 20 after his 12-strikeout performance against Western Michigan.

After giving up a two-out single in the first inning on Friday against Butler, Skenes retired 16 straight batters in a row. His 13 strikeouts are the most by an LSU pitcher since March 2, 2018 when Zack Hess punched out 13 against Toledo. It was also a career-high for Skenes, who transferred from the Air Force Academy. 

Skenes holds a 0.50 ERA this season through 18 innings, allowing one run on sit hits with three walks and 36 strikeouts. He’s limited his opponents to a .100 batting average.
