Codie Paiva Named WCC Rawlings Pitcher of the Week

March 5, 2018

WCC Rawlings Weekly Honors

After throwing a complete-game shutout at Hawaii on Thursday night, junior Codie Paiva has been named WCC Rawlings Pitcher of the Week, it was announced by the conference office on Monday.

The selection is the first of the year for LMU.

Pitching in Hawaii for the first time since the Hawaii State Tournament as a high school player, the right-hander tossed a complete-game shutout against the Rainbow Warriors as LMU posted a 3-0 victory over Hawaii.

Paiva was efficient in posting the complete-game shutout, throwing just 86 pitches, 64 for strikes, while scattering four hits and a walk with four strikeouts. With the win, Paiva moved to 1-2 on the season. The complete-game shutout is the first since Cory Abbott went the distance and blanked Gonzaga on May 13, 2017, while the shutout was the first of the year for LMU, and the first since shutting out Oregon on May 17, 2017.

Also Nominated: Daniel Bies, Gonzaga; Shelby Lackey, Pacific; Eric Lex, Santa Clara; Riley Ornido, San Francisco; Nick Sprengel, San Diego;

BYU junior outfielder Brock Hale raised his batting average from .176 to .279 in the doubleheader on Saturday against Auburn en route to capturing WCC Rawlings Player of the Week. With two out, Hale battled to a full count then homered on the eighth pitch thrown to him with a blast over the angled wall in left field for a 3-0 lead in game one last Saturday.

Hale ended up hitting 4-for-4 in game one, including a double in game one. In the nightcap Hale pounded another dinger, again to left-center, in the fourth inning for BYU’s first run. For the weekend, Hale batted .500 (6-12) with three doubles, two homers and five RBI.



Also Nominated: Jay Schuyler, San Diego; Nick Sogard, Loyola Marymount; Ernie Yake, Gonzaga; Matthew Kanfer, Pepperdine
