WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- USC junior right-handed pitcher Ian Kennedy (Huntington Beach/La Quinta HS) has been named Pitcher of the Week for Feb. 14-20, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Kennedy was one out away from a no-hitter in Friday's 10-1 win over Kansas in the first day at the Public Storage Baseball Classic. Kennedy had struck out 13 batters before his run was ended with a single to center. On the evening, Kennedy (2-1) allowed one unearned run on one hit with three walks. The game marked Kennedy?s 10th time in his career to register double digits in strikeouts. With 308 K's, he is only the seventh Trojan in school history to record 300 or more strikeouts in a career.
The Pitcher of the Week honor is the third for Kennedy, and the 57th selection all-time for USC.
