COLUMBUS, Ohio — Tanner Tully, a 2013 Elkhart Central High School graduate and Ohio State University left-handed pitcher, has been named Big Ten Conference co-baseball freshman of the week.

The award, which is the second Big Ten freshman of the week honor for Tully, is shared with Michigan left-hander Brett Adcock.

Tully pitched a complete-game shutout, scattering seven hits while striking out three and not walking a batter in a 1-0 win at Michigan Friday, May 9.

The outing marked a career best in innings pitched for Tully, who threw 117 pitches, 80 for strikes. Tully became the third Buckeye to pitch a complete-game shutout this season and leads the Big Ten with a 1.79 earned run average.

Tully has allowed just six walks in 80 1/3 innings pitched this season, ranking second nationally with 0.67 walks per nine innings and 11th with a 7-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Tully has pitched at least 7.0 innings in all seven of his starts in Big Ten play.
