Cal State Fullerton baseball pitcher Andrew Quezada earned the Big West Conference Pitcher of the Week award on Monday, following his shutout in the Titans 8-0 win over Hawaii on Sunday.

Quezada tossed his first complete game of the season, logging a career-high nine strikeouts while giving up 11 hits.

“It’s an honor to earn this award, but honestly this is a team award,” Quezada told CSUF Sports Media. “I owe a lot of credit to my teammates for getting me so many runs and playing such great defense behind me.”

Quezada joked that he’s never received the game ball after giving up 11 hits.

A lot of hits weren’t hard but the defense was working hard. I’ll take it, it’s a win,” Quezada said.

This year, Quezada  has started in all nine of his appearances, holding a 2-4 record with a 4.25 ERA. His stats, however, are bogged down by a rough start to the season where he was used as the Saturday starter.

In the five games since moving to the Sunday job, Quezada is 2-2 with 22 strikeouts and 11 earned runs in 32 innings pitched.

“(I’m) learning throughout each start,” Quezada said. “Taking the good and the bad, learning from it and continuing to make adjustments.”
