March 5, 2018

SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference has named its Rawlings Baseball Player and Pitcher of the Week for March 5, 2018.


WEST COAST CONFERENCE RAWLINGS PITCHER OF THE WEEK – CODIE PAIVA, JR., RHP – LOYOLA MARYMOUNT

Pitching in Hawaii for the first time since the Hawaii State Tournament as a high school player, junior righthander Codie Paiva tossed a complete-game shutout against the Rainbow Warriors as LMU posted a 3-0 victory over Hawaii on Thursday night from Les Murakami Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Paiva was efficient in posting the complete-game shutout, throwing just 86 pitches, 64 for strikes, while scattering four hits and a walk with four strikeouts. With the win, Paiva moved to 1-2 on the season. The complete-game shutout is the first since Cory Abbott went the distance and blanked Gonzaga on May 13, 2017, while the shutout was the first of the year for LMU, and the first since shutting out Oregon on May 17, 2017.
