Arizona's Brad Glenn and Arizona State's Josh Satow Named Pac-10 Baseball Player and Pitcher of the Week
Feb. 13, 2007
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - ARIZONA sophomore outfielder Brad Glenn has been named the Pacific-10 Conference Baseball Player of the Week and ARIZONA STATE junior left-handed pitcher Josh Satow has been named Pitcher of the Week for Feb. 5-11, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Glenn, from Tulsa, Okla., went on a tear at the plate to help lead Arizona to a perfect 5-0 week. The outfielder went 9-for-17 (.529) with a double, three home runs, eight RBI's and four runs scored in five games against Utah Valley State and New Mexico. He finished with a 1.118 slugging percentage and also drew two walks and was hit by four pitches to help lead to a .652 on base percentage. In addition, Glenn tied the Arizona school record when he hit three home runs in a single game against Utah Valley State, and narrowly missed out what would have been his record-breaking fourth homer when he hit a double off the left-center field wall in his final at bat of the game. He finished the contest 4-for-4 with a hit-by-pitch, three runs scored and a career-high five RBI's.
Satow, a Scottsdale, Ariz. native, helped lead ASU to an 11-1 victory over the Houston Cougars on Sunday at the Houston College Classic at Minute Maid Park. Satow threw the first complete game for the Sun Devils since June 22, 2005, allowing only one run and six hits while striking out eight to pick up his second win of the year. Satow's complete game was only the second one in the seven year history of the Houston College Classic, and first since the tournament's inaugural season in 2001. Satow was named to the Houston College Classic All-Tournament Team, one of six Sun Devils to be named to the team.
The Player of the Week honor is the first of Glenn's career, while it is the 47th such honor for Arizona. The Pitcher of the Week honor is also the first for Satow, and the 49th selection all-time for Arizona State.
