|The 2010 baseball season got underway last week as the WCC went 13-11 against its non-conference opponents including a win over a ranked opponent as Pepperdine shutout then No. 3 Cal State Fullerton. In all five wins were collected over teams that played in the 2009 NCAA Tournament. This week Gonzaga and Saint Mary's will participate in tournaments as the Zags play at the College Showdown Baseball Tournament and the Gaels play at the Bakersfield Tournament.|
For his efforts against the Titans, Pepperdine's Matt Bywater was recognized by the NBCWA as the National Pitcher of the Week after allowing just four hits and striking out 10 batters in his first career complete game shutout.
