Georgia Tech pitcher Buck Farmer was named the ACC pitcher of the week for a complete-game, 11-strikeout shutout against Duke last Saturday.
It’s the second such award for Farmer, and first of the season. Behind Farmer’s no-walk shutout, the Yellow Jackets beat Duke 1-0 and preseason All-American pitcher Marcus Stroman.
Tech followed Farmer’s win with an 8-0 win as Luke Bard and Alex Cruz combined for a two-hit shutout. It was the first time in school history that Tech won consecutive ACC game with shutouts.
Tech plays Kennesaw State Tuesday at 6 p.m. and has a three-game home series against Florida State, ranked No. 2 in the country in the USA Today coaches poll. Tech is 18-11 overall and 6-6 in the ACC.
