May 23, 2016

SAN BRUNO, Calif.—Sophomore right-hander Eli Morgan earned WCC/Rawlings Pitcher of the Week honors Monday after another shutout performance at San Diego last weekend.

Morgan held the Toreros in check last Friday, May 20, pitching all nine innings and not allowing a run. He didn’t even allow a base runner until the fifth inning, and the shutout was Morgan’s second in a row and third of the season. His three shutouts are tied for third-most during a single season in program history. A native of Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., Morgan also earned the win Friday night, remaining undefeated in WCC play at 8-0. He has 10 wins overall on the year, and at 10-1, so far he’s posted the fourth-best winning percentage in a single season as well.

Morgan and the rest of the squad beat San Diego 8-0 on May 20, clinching a share of the WCC regular season title. It’s Gonzaga’s third WCC title since 2009...
