Hunter Hollan’s dynamite weekend had already earned him SEC Pitcher of the Week honors. Now he has a national one to go with it.
Hollan pitched a complete game in the series clincher for the Razorbacks on Sunday against South Carolina. Hollan allowed just five hits and struck out 10 in Arkansas’ 5-1 win.
Hollan has been Arkansas’ workhorse during SEC play. He has started during all nine series – the only player on the staff to have done that – and has a 4-2 record with 49 innings under his belt. His stuff has been solid throughout, too, as Hollan carries a 4.41 earned-run average in the Diamond Hogs’ final SEC series of the season on the weekend at Vanderbilt.
An Arkansas sweep in Nashville would clinch a regular-season SEC title. At worst, if Arkansas is swept, the Diamond Hogs would still finish in the top four in the conference.
First pitch Friday is scheduled for 6 p.m.
