Tyler Webb Approaching School Record
COLUMBIA, S.C. (USC SID) -- Senior left-hander Tyler Webb continues to excel out of the bullpen with two more saves in the LSU series to extend his season total to 14. Webb pitched a scoreless ninth inning in Saturday's 4-2 win and followed that up with 1.1 perfect innings in the 4-0 victory. Webb has a phenomenal 0.59 ERA in 21 appearances with a 2-1 record and 14 saves in 30.1 innings of work.
He has 44 strikeouts to just seven walks, opponents hitting .170 against him. He has not allowed a run in 19 of 21 appearances this year. His 14 save total for this year is sixth best in school history, seven behind the school record of 21 set by Blake Taylor in 2002. He is up to 99 career appearances; three short of the school record 102 set by Matt Price (2009-10-11-12). His 14 saves leads the SEC with eight of those coming in conference play, also the highest mark in league play.
He has pitched in relief in 87 of those appearances, with 70 relief appearances without allowing a run (82.3 percent). In career relief appearances he is 10-2 with 17 saves.
