Oklahoma freshman relief pitcher Jacob Evans is the Big 12 Baseball Conference's Newcomer of the Week.

Evans was selected Monday after picking up a win and a save last week while throwing 8 2/3 innings of scoreless relief and racking up nine strikeouts.

Evans got the Sooners out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth inning of Saturday's win over TCU to pick up the save — then threw two scoreless innings on Sunday to pick up his fourth win of the season.
