 WASHINGTON’s LEVI JORDAN NAMED PLAYER OF THE WEEK
CALIFORNIA’s AARON SHORTRIDGE TABBED PITCHER OF THE WEEK

SAN FRANCISCO - The Pac-12 Conference office announced today that WASHINGTON’s Levi Jordan was named the Pac-12 Player of the Week and CALIFORNIA’s Aaron Shortridge was tabbed Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week.

Pac-12 Baseball Player of the Week: Levi Jordan, Jr., INF, Washington (Puyallup, Wash.)
• Jordan played a key role in Washington’s series victory over No. 1 Stanford (7-0, 4-2, 5-6) in the final week of Pac-12 play to help the Huskies earn a bid to the NCAA Tournament.
• Went 6-for-11 (.545) with a 1.273 slugging percentage, two home runs, two doubles and six RBIs.
• Hit the go-ahead, three-run home run in the first inning of Washington's 7-0 win on Thursday. It marked the four-year starters' 200th career game, only the seventh Husky to reach the mark.
• Gave UW a 2-0 lead in the first inning on Saturday with a two-run double and followed it up with a solo home run in the sixth inning to secure the upset win.
• Earns his first career Pac-12 Player of the Week honor and Washington’s 61st all-time player award.

Pac-12 Baseball Pitcher of the Week: Aaron Shortridge, Jr., RHP, California (Napa, Calif.)
• Shortridge tossed a complete-game shutout in California’s 3-0 win at Arizona State in the regular-season finale on Sunday.
• The right-hander allowed just six hits, walked only one batter and struck out five to throw Cal's first complete-game shutout since Ryan Mason went the distance in 2016.
• The complete game is Shortridge's third in the 2018 season (April 7 vs. Utah; May 6 vs. USC), and with the performance lowered his ERA to 2.77 which ranks eighth in the Conference.
• Collects his first career Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week award and is the first Golden Bear to earn the nod since Erik Martinez on March 8, 2016. Marks California’s 29th pitching nod.
