  • LSU's Cole Freeman hit .500 (8-for-16) in four games last week with seven runs scored, two doubles, two RBI, one stolen base and a .556 on-base percentage

Co-Player of the Week
Robbie Glendinning, Missouri

  • Missouri's Robbie Glendinning tallied walk-off hits in two of the Tigers' five wins last week and his two walk-off singles are a key reason why Mizzou was able to extend its national-best winning streak to 15 games while posting a 15-1 record, matching the best start in program history.
  • Glendinning hit a walk-off single in a 7-6 win over Western Carolina in the 10th inning and again hit a walk-off single on Sunday to cap a two-run, ninth-inning rally for win No. 15 while completing a series sweep over Appalachian State.
  • He led Mizzou in batting (.476), hits (10), total bases (17) and slugging (.810) while driving in four runs and scoring a team-high five runs on the week.

Pitcher of the Week
David Parkinson, Ole Miss

  • Ole Miss' David Parkinson took a no-hitter into the eighth inning against Furman and posted a career-high nine strikeouts in the longest outing of his Ole Miss career (8.0 innings) on Friday.
  • He faced the minimum, allowing only one hit and one hit by pitch (against a team hitting .317 heading into the weekend); both runners were wiped off the base path.
  • Parkinson kicked off a weekend in which the Rebels did not allow a run, the first complete shutout of a three-game series since 2004

Freshman of the Week
Drake Fellows, Vanderbilt

  • Vanderbilt's Drake Fellows earned his team-best third win of the year and was nearly perfect over a new career-best eight innings, allowing only an unearned run on two singles with eight strikeouts vs. Saint Mary's.
  • He retired 18 straight batters from the second to eighth inning with only an error snapping the streak in the eighth, retired 19 of final 20 batters he faced.
  • Fellows' eight strikeouts moved total to 27 in 27 innings this season.
