UCR Pitcher named Big West best of the week

The Big West  announced today that UC Riverside starter Paul Bargas is the Conference Pitcher of the Week for games played from April 20-26. The 6-1 junior pitched a complete-game, seven-hitter at Cal State Northridge Friday evening in a 9-0 win over the Matadors.

With the win, Bargas’s record improved to 5-3 on the year with a 4.01 ERA. The Riverside native has allowed just five walks in 60.2 innings this season, and none over his last three starts.

The Highlanders, owners of a four-game winning streak, travel to San Diego on Tuesday, April 28 for a 3 pm meeting with the Toreros.
