March 1, 2010
NEW ORLEANS - Junior Conrad Flynn brought home the first weekly honor for the Tulane Baseball team on Monday (March 1) as he was named the Conference USA Pitcher of the Week for his efforts versus Lipscomb last weekend. It is the first career C-USA honor for the Midland, Texas native who enters his second full season with the Green Wave program.
Flynn tossed eight shutout innings on Friday evening versus the Bison and left the contest with a 7-0 lead. The righty tied his career-high with eight strikeouts and didn't walk a batter in the effort. It was the eighth time that Flynn didn't allow a walk in an outing that last more than five innings and tied the junior's career-mark for fewest hits allowed in a start, allowing only three LU hits (N. Colorado, 3/20/09).
Flynn allowed only two base runners to reach third base on the day and pitched around three errors that allowed batters to reach base. He held the Bison to a .107 batting average and faced just four batters over the eight-inning minimum.
The junior now owns a team-best .163 batting average against to go along with a 2.57 earned run average for the season, tying him with Kyle McKenzie for tops on the squad. He has struck out 17 batters and walked only one, while surrendering just eight hits in 14 innings on the mound.
