Thomas wins opening SAC Pitcher of the Week award

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - Pitcher Clay Thomas earned the Sooner Athletic Conference's first Pitcher of the Week award in 2012 as announced by the conference office today.

Thomas picks up the award for his play during the week of January 30 - February 5.

The junior handcuffed McPherson College throwing a complete-game shutout fanning 13 batters while giving up just one hit and one walk in the second game of a doubleheader on Saturday afternoon.

The Texas native made his second start this season after blowing out his elbow at the beginning of last season. He recovered from Tommy John surgery and is now a valuable part of head coach Ryan Bay's starting rotation this season.
