Gonzales Earns WCC Rawlings Pitcher of the Week

SAN BRUNO, Calif. - Gonzaga University baseball sophomore Marco Gonzales was named the West Coast Conference's Rawlings Pitcher of the Week Monday. This is Gonzales' first WCC weekly honor of the season, third in his career.

The Fort Collins, Colo., native also becomes the first Bulldog to take home the conference's pitcher of the week accolade since senior and fellow left-hander Tyler Olson received the honor March 5.

Although he received a no-decision, Gonzales set career-marks of 11 shutout innings and 15 strikeouts, including six straight between the eighth-10 innings, to lead Gonzaga to a 1-0 win over Loyola Marymount University in 12 innings in front of a record crowd of 2,011 and in the baseball program's debut on ESPNU last Saturday. Gonzales also held the Lions to five hits and did not issue a walk on 139 pitches.

The Bulldogs will welcome Pacific-12 Conference powerhouse University of Oregon for a two-game series Tuesday and Wednesday. Both games are scheduled for 6 p.m. start.
