Jared West Tabbed American Pitcher of the Week

Feb. 17, 2014

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Awarded for his 7.0 shutout innings and one-hit bid that helped Houston Baseball secure a weekend sweep of Nicholls State, sophomore Jared West was honored as the American Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week for the first time in his career, while junior Aaron Garza was named to the league’s weekly Honor Roll.

West, a left-handed hurler, tossed a career-high 7.0-shutout innings as Houston’s Sunday starter, allowing just one hit and no walks. The Frierson, La. native, rode a perfect game for 6.2 innings, not allowing a single base runner, until a two-out double ended the no-hit effort. West wrapped up the win with just 63 total pitches thrown.

The sophomore finished with a career-high four strikeouts in the shutout performance in just his third start as a Cougar - leading to his first collegiate victory.

West became the first American Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week as 2014 marks the inaugural season of the new league.

Garza made a statement in Houston’s opener against Nicholls State to earn a spot on the league’s weekly Honor Roll list. The right-handed pitcher from Galveston, Texas also tossed 7.0 shutout frames, striking out a career-tying six and walking just one to accompany just two hits allowed. The shutout victory marked Garza’s eighth career win.

West and Garza were part of the starting pitching rotation that tossed 21 shutout innings over the weekend as sophomore Jake Lemoine went 7.0 in his Saturday start as well. The trio fanned 14 and walked just two in the three-game sweep.
