SAN BRUNO, Calif. - The West Coast Conference has named its Rawlings Baseball Player and Pitcher of the Week for March 16, 2015.
WEST COAST CONFERENCE RAWLINGS PLAYER OF THE WEEK - DILLON ROBINSON, SR., IF - BYU
Senior infielder/DH Dillon Robinson raised his batting average from .323 to .360 by batting a team-high .538 average in the four games last week. He sprained his ankle at the end of Tuesday's victory at Utah Valley after he moved from starting at third base to finishing at first base, and scored BYU's seventh run in the 10-7 victory at UVU. Because of the injury, he was relegated to the DH role in the Pepperdine series. He had six hits, two of which were doubles in the Pepperdine series where he batted .545 to lead the team.
Also Nominated: David Fletcher, Loyola Marymount; Kyle Holder, San Diego; Manny Jefferson, Pepperdine; Nate Verlin, Pacific; Anthony Villa, Saint Mary's; Jose Vizcaino Jr., Santa Clara
WEST COAST CONFERENCE RAWLINGS PITCHER OF THE WEEK - DAVID HILL, JR., RHP - SAN DIEGO
Junior righthander David Hill (3-2) was brilliant on the mound for San Diego once again, as he baffled Portland batters in Friday's series-opening win. Hill retired the first seven batters he faced, before Eric Sapp broke up the perfect game with a single. Hill on the evening, scattered just four hits, struck out a career-high 14 batters on 109 pitches, 87 for strikes, in his first complete game as a Torero. The 14 strikeouts is tied for third most in USD single-game history with Mike Saipe who did it in the 1994 season.
Also Nominated: Corbin Burnes, Saint Mary's; Christian Cecilio, San Francisco; Michael Hager, Pacific; Jackson McClelland, Pepperdine; Tylor Megill, Loyola Marymount; Michael Rucker, BYU; Steven Wilson, Santa Clara
