Notes: Freshman right-hander Trevor Bettencourt recorded wins in both of his appearances last week, helping the Vols shut out Western Kentucky, 4-0, on Tuesday and coming out of the bullpen to shut down Alabama in a 7-6 win on Saturday. The victories were the first two of his collegiate career.
One of the most reliable arms out of the bullpen so far this season for Tennessee, Bettencourt made his first career start against the Hilltoppers, striking out three and scattering six hits in 3.2 shutout innings. He then added two more punchouts in 2.1 innings of relief against the Crimson Tide, yielding just one run on two hits as the Big Orange picked up its first SEC win of the season.
Those two efforts helped lower his ERA for the season down to a miniscule 1.65, having allowed just three runs in 16.1 innings of work. He also has a team-leading two saves on the year and opponents are hitting just .233 off of him.
