For the second straight week, Florida State Baseball has the ACC Pitcher of the Week. Last week, Bryce Hubbart was named the Pitcher of the Week after five scoreless frames and a career-high 13 strikeouts. Today, Parker Messick was named the conference’s Pitcher of the Week:
Messick earned the award after a dominant outing in Florida State’s 7-0 win over the Samford Bulldogs this past Friday. The southpaw set a career-high with 13 strikeouts over seven scoreless innings. He squandered just one hit and didn’t walk any batters. He faced just two batters over the minimum in his seven innings of work.
This is the second time Messick has earned this weekly honor. Last season, he was named the pitcher of the week following eight shutout innings against the Virginia Cavaliers. He later went on to be named the conference’s Pitcher and Freshman of the Year.
The Plant City native is also a nominee for the D1Baseball Golden Spikes Performance of the Week:
