IRVINE, Calif.--- Cal State Fullerton southpaw John Gavin (San Jose, Calif./St. Francis HS) scattered just two hits over eight scoreless innings against New Mexico to earn Big West Baseball Pitcher of the Week accolades this week, the conference office announced on Monday.
Gavin is the second Titan to take home the honor this year, as Connor Seabold earned the nod back on Feb.20. This is the first time Gavin has been named conference pitcher of the week in his career.
Gavin struck out a career-high 14 batters to earn the victory in a 1-0 pitcher's duel. He tallied the most strikeouts by a Titan since Thomas Eshelman also fanned 14 against Arizona State on May 30, 2015.
He retired 16 straight Lobos to end his day, helping the Titans to stretch their winning streak to seven straight.
Others nominated: Spencer Howard (Cal Poly); Tei Vanderford (CSUN); Darren McCaughan (Long Beach State); Alex Fagalde (UC Riverside); Brendan Hornung (Hawai'i)
