Garza Named Big West Pitcher of the Week

IRVINE, Calif. – Cal State Fullerton right-hander Justin Garza was named the Big West Baseball Pitcher of the Week, it was announced by the conference office on Monday.

Garza handcuffed Texas A&M to the tune of seven shutout innings in Saturday's 2-0 victory over the Aggies, which evened the weekend series.

The native of Ontario, Calif., scattered five hits and walked one in his effort as the rookie struck out six and racked up his second combined shutout.

The phenom has hurled 28 and 1/3 innings this year, allowing just three earned runs for a miniscule 0.95 ERA that tops the Big West Conference.

In addition, Garza is holding opposing hitters to a .176 average, which rates third in the league.

This is Garza's first Big West Pitcher of the Week award, and the second for Cal State Fullerton in 2013 as Thomas Eshelman earned the honor on March 4.

Sophomore J.D. Davis was named Big West Player of the Week on Feb. 18.

It was a pair of freshmen winning league honors on Monday as UC Riverside's Joe Chaves was named the Big West Player of the Week.

Others nominated: Matt Imhof (Cal Poly); Jerry Keel (Cal State Northridge); Evan Wolf (UC Davis); Andrew Morales (UC Irvine); Michael Benson (Pacific)
