Freshman pitcher Preston Morrison was named the Mountain West Pitcher of the Week for the second consecutive week and third time this season after throwing his first-career complete game Saturday against San Diego State. He held the Aztecs to one hit and retired 21 consecutive batters after the second inning.
Morrison (9-0) leads the MWC with a 1.54 ERA, is tied for the lead with five wins, and is second to teammate Andrew Mitchell with an opponent batting average of .164.
Morrison is a strong favorite to earn MWC Pitcher of the Year honors when the league’s award winners are announced today.
TCU (35-17) opens the MWC tournament against San Diego State (24-32) at 5 p.m. Thursday at Earl E. Wilson Stadium in Las Vegas.
