Fresno State’s Shull honored by MW
Fresno State junior Jake Shull was named the Mountain West Pitcher of the Week for the second time this season.
Shull, a junior, threw a one-hitter to lead Fresno State past San Jose State 4-0 to open a Mountain West series, his no-hit bid broken up by an infield single after 5 2/3 innings.
The team’s closer to begin the season, Shull moved over to Friday night starter the past month. He made two appearances in the games played April 28-May 3, which included a one-inning relief appearance at Cal. He did not allow a hit against the Bears either.
Shull is 3-5 with a 1.87 ERA. He has six saves and 33 strikeouts in 53 innings.
Fresno State (23-25) will host Cal State Northridge (27-19) of the Big West at 6:35 p.m. Tuesday in the Bulldogs’ final nonconference game of the season.
