WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Washington right-handed pitcher Tyler Davis has been tabbed Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week for Mar. 31-April 6 and Washington State outfielder Yale Rosen has been named Pac-12 Player of the Week the Conference office announced Monday.
Davis, a junior from Mountain View, Calif., turned in a stellar performance to help the first-place Huskies even the series on Saturday at home against top-20 ranked Oregon. The right-hander struck out a career-high 10 batters in a career-best 7 and 2/3 innings to lead Washington to a 1-0 win over the Ducks.
Davis threw 89 pitches, allowing just three hits and giving up one walk to improve his record to 6-1 on the season. His ERA of 1.16 currently ranks second in the Pac-12 while he has allowed one run or fewer in each of his last six starts and three hits or fewer in each of his last three.
Davis picks up his first-career Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week nod and the 42nd overall for the Huskies. Washington has earned a Conference-high four weekly honors this season with Davis being the first Husky to earn the pitcher of the week nod in 2014.
It is the first time since 2006 that the Huskies have taken Player of the Week honors in four consecutive week. Tim Lincecum did it single-handedly that year.
