Arizona's Crowe, Stanford's Gilmore Named Pac-10 Baseball Player/Pitcher of the Week
May 10, 2005
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - ARIZONA junior outfielder Trevor Crowe has been named Pacific-10 Conference Baseball Player of the Week and STANFORD junior righthanded pitcher Jeff Gilmore has been named Pitcher of the Week for May 3-9, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Crowe, from Portland, Ore., led the Arizona offense to a weekend sweep over Utah Valley State. The left-fielder batted a team-best .538 (7-for-13) with a double, three triples, four RBI, three stolen bases and a series-high seven runs scored. Crowe finished the three-game set with a 1.077 slugging percentage and a .571 on base percentage. In the series opener on May 6, Crowe finished with a pair of triples- including one to lead off the game - as part of a 3-for-5, two-RBI and three-run day at the plate. On May 7 he hit his Pac-10-leading 11th three-bagger of the year, putting him one shy of the Pac-10 single-season record for triples, while going 3-for-4 with two RBI and three runs scored.
Gilmore, from Huntington Beach, Calif., was 2-0 and did not allow an earned run in 10.0 innings last week. He pitched the first 3.0 innings in an 8-0 shutout at UC Davis on May 2 and then pitched 7.0 innings without giving up an earned run in a 7-5 victory at California on May 6, retiring the first 13 batters he faced before the Golden Bears finally got their first hit and baserunner with one out in the bottom of the fifth. For the season, Gilmore is 8-1 with a 3.24 ERA (7th, Pac-10), striking out 63 in 86.0 innings of work (4th) and allowing opponents a batting average of just .233 (9th).
The Player of the Week honor is the third of Crowe's career, the second this season, while it is the 45th such honor for Arizona. The Pitcher of the Week honor is the first for Gilmore and the 69th selection all-time for Stanford.
