Kaplan and McArthur Earn Top Weekly Honors

April 23, 2007

Irvine, Calif. - Cal State Fullerton's Jeff Kaplan and Evan McArthur nabbed Big West Pitcher and Player of the Week honors as announced by the Irvine-based conference office Monday Morning for the week ending Apr. 22. It is the first weekly conference honor for each player this year and the second in McArthur's career.

Kaplan, sharing the Pitcher of the Week honor with Cal Poly's Matt Leonard, threw his second complete game shutout of the season on Saturday, scattering five hits while striking out seven in the Titans' 2-0 win over Pacific. The junior from Dana Point retired the first six hitters he faced then set down the final 10 men he faced to earn his team-leading seventh win of the year.

McArthur hit a team best .545 and blasted his first two homers of the season in the three-game sweep of the Tigers. On Friday, the senior third baseman from Medford, Oregon, went 3-for-4, walked twice, homered and scored five runs in the 18-1 route. On Sunday, his second home run of the weekend, a two-run shot, proved to be the game-winner as the Titans went on to seal the series sweep with a 12-1 win. Both days, McArthur missed hitting for the cycle by a triple. The senior also led the team with 14 total bases, a 1.273 slugging percentage and also posted a .615 on base percentage.

Cal Poly's Leonard guided the Mustangs to victory with a three-hit, complete-game shutout of his own, recording nine strikeouts to earn his share of the Pitcher of the Week honor.

Cal State Fullerton begins a streak of six road games beginning Tuesday Apr. 24 at USC. Then it will be back to conference play at UC Riverside before another midweek tilt at Pepperdine the following Tuesday.
