Fresno State right-hander Jordan Brink has been selected as the Mountain West Conference pitcher of the week after capping a five-game sweep of the Air Force with a 5-3 victory at Beiden Field in which he struck out a career-high 12 batters in his first career complete game.
The sophomore from Central High, allowed only two earned runs and pounded the strike zone throughout, hitting 96 mph with his fastball. He threw 83 of his 114 pitches for strikes including 33 of his last 43 over the seventh, eighth and ninth innings. He is the third Fresno State pitcher to earn the weekly honor this season, joining sophomore Derick Velazquez and senior Tyler Linehan.
Brink also hit .615 (8 for 13) during the series with three triples, two doubles and seven RBI. UNLV catcher Erik VanMeetren was selected as the player of the week, after hitting .500 (8 for 16) during a week that included a sweep of San Diego State.
