Cal Poly Pomona pitcher honored

Cal Poly Pomona right-hander Erick Ruvalcaba has been named the Wilson/California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Pitcher of the Week for the week of May 2 to May 9,

Ruvalcaba, a junior from Whittier, turned in a big-time effort in Friday’s series opener against Cal State L.A. With the Broncos seeking a win to enhance their chances of earning a CCAA Tournament berth, Ruvalcaba hurled a complete-game three-hit shutout against the Golden Eagles.

In nine innings of work, Ruvalcaba walked two and struck two as he pitched the Broncos to a 6-0 victory that helped CPP earn a series split and a CCAA Tournament berth.

Cal Poly Pomona, seeded fourth in the CCAA Tournament, will face No. 1 seed UC San Diego Thursday at 3 p.m. The double-elimination tournament runs Thursday through Saturday at the University of the Pacific’s Klein Family Field in Stockton.
