MALIBU, Calif. Â Pepperdine junior pitcher Brett Hunter was named the WCC Pitcher of the Week on Monday by the league office following his strong performance in the Waves’ season-opening win on Saturday.
Hunter, a preseason first-team All-American, claimed the Waves first victory of the season on Saturday over Wake Forest, as he pitched six innings, allowing four hits and two earned runs while striking out six batters, as the Waves prevailed 3-2. This is the second career WCC Pitcher of the Week honor for Hunter, as he also claimed the award on Apr. 23, 2007.
Hunter and the Waves will face UC Riverside tomorrow at 2 p.m. at Eddy D. Field Stadium.
