Meyers Named WCC Pitcher of the Week

Feb. 27, 2006

San Bruno, Calif. - Brad Meyers has been named the West Coast Conference Pitcher of the Week, then conference announced Monday. The sophomore threw a complete game without a walk to lead the Lions to a 3-2 victory on the road Friday.

It was the first career complete game for Meyers, who was selected as the WCC's Top Draft Prospect by Baseball America in January. Today's selection also marks his first WCC Pitcher of the Week selection.

Meyers worked the nine innings Friday without issuing a walk. He struck out a career-high six batters and allowed just one extra base hit to pick up his first win of 2006.

The complete game effort marked the first of 2006 for the Lion pitching staff and the first since April 23, 2005, when Stephen Kahn (Seattle Mariners) threw nine at San Francisco.

Meyers and the Lions will now host Waseda University of Japan in an exhibition game Tuesday at Page Stadium. First pitch is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. and admission is free to all. Fans can also follow all of the action on Lions' All-Access at www.LMULions.com.
