Renken Named Conference Pitcher of the Week

March 10, 2008

Irvine, Calif. - Cal State Fullerton's freshman Daniel Renken went 2-0 last week striking out 12 to garner his first Easton Big West Pitcher of the Week honor as announced by the league office Monday afternoon.

Renken's (Cypress, Calif. / Orange Lutheran High School) tossed seven innings of three-hit, one run baseball against No. 3 UCLA on Wednesday (Mar. 5) in Los Angeles, then picked up a win in relief on Sunday, leading the Titans pitching staff with two of the team's five wins this week all while holding his opponents to just a .167 batting average against him.

On Wednesday, in just his second career start, the right-hander pounded the strike zone and notched a career-high 10 strikeouts against the Bruins. He worked perfect through four innings setting all 12 batters he aced down on just 35 pitches (30 strikes) before back-to-back extra base hits broke the no-hit and shutout bid leading off the fifth inning. Renken did not allow his third hit of the game until the seventh inning.

On Sunday, Renken came on in a 5-5 game against Southern Miss and worked 1.1 innings collecting a pair of strikeouts and his third win of the year. He was the beneficiary of a five-run Titan outburst in the eventual 19-6 win.

With his performances last week, Renken has been promoted to the weekend rotation and will pitch Saturday night at No. 1 Arizona.
