Tyler Guilfoil Named Southeastern Conference Pitcher of the Week
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky junior pitcher Tyler Guilfoil has been named Southeastern Conference Pitcher of the Week after holding No. 1 Tennessee to one hit in six innings of relief in Thursday’s 3-2, 13-inning victory.
The Wildcats became the first team this season to win a series over the Volunteers and first since 2019 to give them a road SEC series defeat.
Guilfoil was dominating in the opener, holding the nation’s top offense to a single hit after coming on in the eighth inning and holding Tennessee at bay until the Cats got a two-out walk-off single from Alonzo Rubalcaba.
Guilfoil, a Lexington native who transferred back home after last season, picked up his first win of the season to go along with a team-high four saves. He has a 1.45 earned run average in 37.1 innings while striking out nearly 15 batters per nine innings. He has a microscopic 1.01 ERA in 26.2 SEC innings.
UK will host UT Martin on Tuesday night before traveling to South Carolina this weekend.
