May 5, 2014
LONG BACH, Calif. - Sophomore pitcher Andrew Rohrbach became the fourth Dirtbag to earn Player of the Week honors from the Big West Conference this year, taking the honor for is performance last week. Rohrbach is the second Dirtbag pitcher honored this year and earned the recognition for the first time in his career.
The Dirtbags Friday night starter went toe-to-toe with Cal State Fullerton ace Thomas Eshelman and led Long Beach State to Friday's 1-0 win over their rivals from Orange County. Rohrbach tied a career-high with nine strikeouts without issuing a walk or hitting a batter in his seven hit, complete game shutout.
The CG SO was the second of the season for Rohrbach and was the ninth of the season for Long Beach State, which tied the school record at the time. A shutout on Saturday rewrote the record.
Rohrbach improved to 5-1 on the season with the shutout win and lowered his ERA to 2.03 on the year. He is 2-0 with a 2.16 ERA in five starts in Big West games.
Rohrbach's recognition marks the third week in a row that a Dirtbag has been named on the Big West's weekly honor roll. Josh Frye took Pitcher of the Week honors two weeks ago and Cameron Pongs was the Hitter of the Week last week. Richard Prigatano was also selected as the Big West's Hitter of the Week earlier in the season.
