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.
