Nick Sabo gave up zero runs in 8.2 innings pitched last week.
April 29, 2013
Long Beach, Calif. - Sophomore left-hander Nick Sabo was named the Big West Pitcher of the Week after helping the Dirtbags win in two games against ranked opponents in the last week.
Getting the start on Tuesday against No. 7 UCLA, Sabo rose to the challenge with his best start of the season. Matching a career-high with five innings pitched, Sabo earned the win over the Bruins, scattering three hits with no runs allowed in an 11-1 rout at UCLA.
Then on Sunday against No. 18 Cal Poly, Sabo entered the game in the third inning in relief with the bases loaded and one-out with the Dirtbags trailing 3-0. With a shallow fly ball and a popout, Sabo got Long Beach State out of the inning and threw three more scoreless innings as the Dirtbags rallied to defeat Cal Poly 9-5.
Combined, Sabo threw 8.2 scoreless innings last week against two ranked teams, allowing just five hits while holding the Bruins and Mustangs to .172 hitting.
Sabo is the first Dirtbags player to win a weekly honor from the Big West this season, and it is the first award of his collegiate career.
