Greg Reynolds Named Pac-10 Pitcher Of The Week
May 2, 2006
Walnut Creek, Calif. - Stanford junior righthanded pitcher Greg Reynolds earned Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week honors for the first time in his career for the period ending Monday, May 1. Reynolds tossed his first career complete game and the first by a Stanford pitcher this season when he tossed a three-hitter in a 7-1 win over No. 16 Arizona State last Friday, April 28. Reynolds struck out eight and walked just one in the outing.
The Stanford ace has won three of his last four decisions to improve to 4-3 overall this season. He has 3.66 ERA on the season with team-highs of 67 strikeouts (#8 Pac-10) and 78.2 innings pitched (#6 Pac-10).
His selection marked the 71st time a Stanford pitcher has been chosen for the honor in the history of the award and the second time this season following David Stringer's selection on February 28.
Stanford plays four home games at Sunken Diamond this week, beginning with a non-conference outing versus San Jose State on Tuesday (6 pm, PT) before California crosses the Bay for a three-game Pac-10 set Friday-Sunday, May 5-7 (6 pm, 4 pm, 1 pm, PT).
The first two games of the Stanford-California series will be televised live with Friday night's game airing on Comcast Sports Net and Saturday's contest on Fox Sports Net Bay Area. There will also be promotions for the final two contests of the series. On Saturday, the 'All-Time Starting 9' as voted upon by fans throughout the 2006 season will be announced and the first 2000 people through the gate will receive limited edition 'All-Time Starting 9' trading cards. The annual Little League Day will be held in conjunction with Sunday's contest.
