COLUMBIA — The Southeastern Conference named Missouri baseball pitcher Keaton Steele, who played a key role in Missouri's first Southeastern Conference win, its Pitcher of the Week.

After dropping the first two games of its three-game series against No. 5 South Carolina, Missouri won the final game of the series by a score of 4-0. Steele carried the load for the Missouri pitching staff, pitching six scoreless innings and allowing just three hits in relief. Only four Gamecocks reached base against Steele, and none advanced past first base. 

In 13.2 innings this season, Steele has recorded an ERA of 2.63, along with 15 strikeouts. Opposing batters have managed a combined batting average of .208 against the transfer from Iowa Western Community College. Steele has also played third base for the Tigers.

Missouri baseball is back in action against Arkansas State at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Taylor Stadium.
