Washington junior pitcher Clay Johnson has been selected as the Pacific-10 Conference Pitcher of the Week, conference commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Johnson, a right-hander from Elma, Wash., picked up a pair of wins last week in two starts. Last Tuesday, he threw four innings to beat Hawaii-Hilo before working six innings in a crucial win Sunday over California, his first start this season against a conference opponent. He allowed only one run on nine hits over his 10 innings of work while striking out nine.
Johnson is 4-2 on the season with a 5.50 earned run average.
Arizona State's Jeremy West, who hit a 10th-inning walk-off homer Saturday night and then had three homers and nine RBI Sunday vs. Washington State, was named the Pac-10 Player of the Week.
The Huskies face 12-time NAIA champion Lewis-Clark State Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. before travelling to Pullman this weekend for a three-game series.
