Texas Tech's Jonny Drozd named Big 12 Newcomer of the Week

From Texas Tech Athletics:

For the second consecutive week, the Texas Tech baseball program has had the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week while junior left-handed pitcher Jonny Drozd (Lake Dallas, Texas) was selected on Monday, the league office announced this afternoon.

One week ago Tech outfielder Devon Conley was named the league's newcomer of the week while Drozd becomes the fifth Red Raider all-time to receive the honor.

In two appearances – one start and one relief outing – Drozd went 2-0 with 12.1 scoreless innings and struck out 12 while allowing just six hits and one walk on the week.

He began the week with a seven-inning start against Utah Valley where he struck out 12 batters in seven innings without allowing a run and giving up just two base hits with one walk. His efforts led Tech to a 9-2 win over the Wolverines.

Drozd finished the week leading Tech to a series win at Texas with a 4-2 victory on Sunday. He pitched 5.1 scoreless innings from the bullpen while allowing just four hits and struck out two in his third win of the season.

His 5.1 innings pitched in relief mark the most by a Tech reliever while earning a win in Big 12 action since April 11, 2004 when Corey Gerstner pitched six innings in relief at No. 12 Nebraska leading Tech to a 10-3 victory.

Drozd is 3-1 this season with a 2.55 ERA in six appearances (3 starts) with 24.2 innings pitched, 17 strikeouts and just two walks.

Jonny Drozd is just the second Red Raider pitcher to receive Big 12 Newcomer of the Week honors… the first and only other pitcher to receive the award is former Red Raider RHP Duke von Schamann who picked up the award in 2011 on May 23 following the last week of the regular season.
