Freshman Ramirez Named Player of the Week

March 9, 2009

Irvine, Calif. - Cal State Fullerton's Nick Ramirez was named the Big West Player of the Week after hitting .500 and belting three home runs in road games against San Diego State and Southern Miss to propel the Titans to a perfect 4-0 week.

The freshman continued his dominance of college pitching and extending his hitting streak to nine games, going 9-for-18 with two doubles, three home runs and seven RBI in wins over the Aztecs and Golden Eagles.

In Tuesday's midweek match-up at Tony Gwynn Stadium the Katella High School product went 3-for-4 with a pair of singles and a two-run double in the Titan's 7-2 victory.

In the Titan's 22-hit offensive outburst on Friday in Hattiesburg, the left-handed hitter was a triple away from hitting for the cycle, collecting a single, a double and a home run, one of three Titan round-trippers in the top of the third. His Friday night homer was also the back end of a back-to-back home run combo in the inning.

Saturday against the Eagles Ramirez was hitless against the home team's pitching staff until a seventh-inning, two-run jack into the Right Field Roost provided two of the Titans' final three insurance runs in the 11-6 win.

In the series finale, Ramirez singled in his first at bat and homered (for the third game in a row) over the batter's eye in center, and also pitched two perfect innings on the mound to help secure the series sweep. It was the first time since 1996 that a non-conference opponent took all three games in the series against the Golden Eagles at Pete Taylor Park.
