BIRMINGHAM - Harding University senior starting pitcher Troy Keith was named Gulf South Conference Pitcher of the Week on Tuesday. It is Keith's first career Pitcher of the Week honor.
Keith ended his week completely opposite of how he started it, tossing Harding's sixth no-hitter in school history. The senior was knocked out of last Tuesday's game against Drury (Mo.) in the second inning after giving up five runs on three hits in just an inning and two-thirds of work.
The product of Magnolia, Ark. rebounded in the best possible way however, blanking GSC foe Alabama-Huntsville in Saturday's doubleheader opener for his first career shutout. Keith faced just one batter over the minimum with three walks and three strikeouts against the visiting Chargers.
It was the first no-hitter for the Bisons since 2004.
