SAN BRUNO, Calif. - The University of San Diego freshman left-hander Brian Matusz has been named this weeks West Coast Conference Pitcher of the Week.
Matusz was key in the Toreros lone win of the week as he allowed one run on five hits in Friday's 6-1 win against Pepperdine University. In the game, Matusz allowed four of the five hits he gave up in the first four innings, and then he settled down and only allowed one hit for the remainder of his outing. Matusz also held the normally potent Pepperdine batters to a .192 batting average in the win. Matusz is now 4-2 with an ERA of 3.27.
Matusz the 24th-ranked Toreros will return to action on Tuesday as they look to avenge a loss from earlier this season against the Anteaters of UC Irvine in a 6 p.m. game in Irvine, Calif. The Toreros will then travel to San Francisco, Calif. for a three-game WCC series with the Dons of the University of San Francisco. Friday's game is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. and both Saturday's and Sunday's games will begin at 1 p.m.
