San Diego State's Stephen today was selected Mountain West Conference Pitcher of the Week, the third time this season the junior right-hander has been so recognized. He also was selected Louisville Slugger National Player of the Week for the fourth time this season.
This honor comes for Strasburg's 15-strikeout performance in last week's 4-2 MWC loss to BYU. Strasburg departed after seven innings with the Aztecs leading 2-0. He allowed two hits and walked to in seven shutout innings. Strasburg (4-0) has 74 strikeouts in 34.1 innings this season and an ERA of 1.57.
Strasburg is scheduled to start again on Friday when the Aztecs open a MWC series at TCU.
SDSU pitchers have won all five MWC Pitcher of the Week awrds this season. Strasburg teammates Tyler Lavigne and Jon Berger won the other two for the Aztecs.
