Irvine, Calif. - Cal State Fullerton has swept the Big Wet Conference's weekly honors this week as both Gary Brown and Noe Ramirez were named baseball Player and Pitcher of the Week Monday morning by the league office.
Brown continued terrorizing at the plate this past week tallying 12 hits in 19 (.632) at bats against San Diego and Arizona and has now hit in 10 straight games. The junior centerfielder tallied four straight, three-hit games, scoring six times while driving in six.
The Diamond Bar native had at least one extra base hit in each of the four games, hitting a double, two triples and a pair of home runs on the week.
The speedster also stole three bases in three chances and moved to within six bags of the CSF career Top 10. His two triples also moved him into sole possession of third place on the Titans' career Top 10 for three-baggers.
Ramirez tossed his first career complete game on Saturday in Tucson, Ariz., as he faced just eight batters over the minimum to lead the Titans to a 6-1 victory on the road.
The right-hander from East Los Angeles was one strikeout off his career high, fanning nine Arizona Wildcats while walking just one. He surrendered just five hits.
Ramirez had a shutout in tact for 8.1 innings before surrendering his only run in the ninth inning.
This is Brown's second career player of the week nod, and the first for Ramirez.
