AUBURN, Ala. – After picking up the first two saves of his career over the weekend during Auburn's three-game sweep of Kentucky, Dillon Ortman has been named a Southeastern Conference Co-Freshman of the Week, the conference office announced on Monday. 

A right hander from Huntsville, Ortman threw a total of 3 1/3 innings in two relief appearances at Kentucky, picking up a save in Friday's opener and in Sunday's sweep-clinching win, Auburn's first sweep of Kentucky since 2003. 

On Friday Ortman entered with Auburn up 12-9 and a man on second and none out, retiring all three hitters he faced to pick up the save. He returned on Sunday and threw the final 2 1/3 innings, entering with Auburn up 6-2 and the bases loaded and two outs. He finished the day without allowing a hit or a walk as Auburn claimed an 8-2 win. 

Ortman has appeared in 10 games this season and has a 4.34 ERA in 18 2/3 innings, allowing 10 runs (nine earned) on 20 hits and four walks, striking out 15. 

Arkansas infielder Dominic Ficociello shared the award with Ortman for the week. 

Auburn (18-14, 5-7 SEC) returns to the field on Friday, April 15 when it faces LSU in Baton Rouge, La., for the first game of a three-game series.
