Tulane junior Tim Yandel named AAC Pitcher of the Week

(WVUE) -

Tulane's lone loss of the weekend at Pepperdine came Sunday, but junior Tim Yandel's performance in the 2-1 defeat was good enough to earn him American Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week honors.

The Georgia native did not allow a single hit in 6.1 innings while only conceded two walks and striking out five in his first career start.  Before Sunday, the right-handed pitcher's longest outing was 3.0 innings of relief work last season.  His five strikeouts were also a career best.

Additionally, Yandel served as designated hitter the first two games of the season, hitting his first-career home run Friday.
