Guilmet Named Pac-10 POW

April 28, 2009

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – Arizona senior pitcher Preston Guilmet has been named the Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week, the league office announced on Tuesday morning.

Guilmet led the Wildcats to an 11-1 victory at Stanford, as the right hander picked up his first road win of the season and pushed his overall record to 3-4 on the season and lowered his ERA to 3.63.

Ranked No. 4 in Pac-10 history and No. 3 at Arizona for career strikeouts (385), Guilmet fanned only three Cardinal hitters last Friday, but turned in season lows for hits (5) and runs allowed (1).

The native of Citrus Heights, Calif., stifled Cardinal hitters all evening long, preventing any chance of a Stanford rally as opposing hitters were 0-for-7 on the night with runners on base.

The weekly award is the sixth-all-time for Guilmet, who was honored as the Pac-10 Pitcher of the Year in 2007 when he boasted a 12-2 record and a 1.87 ERA. He was recognized four times in his sensational sophomore season and once a year ago as a junior.

Earlier this season, Jason Stoffel was tabbed Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week on March 17 after tallying a pair of saves in three dominating performances against Oklahoma State and Michigan.

All-time, Arizona pitchers have been tabbed 42 times for the weekly award.

The Wildcats will host Arizona State in a non-conference showdown on Wednesday at 3 p.m. at Jerry Kindall Field.
