Aaron Garza Named American Pitcher of the Week

March 3, 2014

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Houston Baseball earned its third straight American Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week honor as junior Aaron Garza was tabbed the week’s top pitcher after his shutout win over No. 26 Texas Tech in the Houston College Classic on Friday at Minute Maid Park.

Garza was one out away from a complete game shutout as he logged a career-long 8.2 shutout innings in his start against the Red Raiders. The right-hander struck out a career-high seven hitters and didn’t allow a walk in his win. He allowed just six scattered hits, four of which didn’t leave the infield. He held Texas Tech, who entered the weekend hitting .300 as a team, to a mere .194 average and without a hit until the fourth inning.

To no surprise, Garza was named the Houston College Classic Most Valuable Player (MVP) and was one of four Cougars named to the All-Tournament team.

The Galveston, Texas native was the first Houston Cougar named the Houston College Classic tournament MVP since Brad Lincoln was honored back in 2006. The Cougars have participated in the event since the inaugural year with 2014 marking the 14th straight season.

Garza’s combined shutout effort on Friday was the fifth shutout by Houston this season … the most since eight back in 2002. He is now 3-0 on the year, lasting at least 7.0 innings in all three starts to hold an ERA of 0.41 in 22.0 innings with 18 strikeouts and two walks. The team ERA is now 0.80 in the first 10 games of the year.

Despite dropping two, one-run games on the weekend, the Houston College Classic (known as one of the premier college baseball tournaments in the nation) featured four ranked teams in No. 10 Rice, No. 12 TCU, No. 15 Texas, No. 26 Texas Tech as well as Houston and Sam Houston State.

Garza is the third straight Houston student-athlete to receive a weekly honor by the conference office as Tyler Ford and Jared West were tabbed Pitchers of the Week the last two weeks, respectively. 2014 marks the first year since 2006 that Houston Baseball has received multiple Pitcher of the Week honors in one season.
