The Beavers will look for win number twenty on the season tonight when they face the Aztecs of San DIego State. Lefty Brandon Eisert picks up the Pac-12 Pitcher of the week award for his performance against Washington last weekend. (DETAILS Below)
Tonight's game will be on Rip City Radio 620 in Portland at 5:pm with Mike Parker on the call.
Here are details on the Eisert award:
Brandon Eisert held Washington to just four hits in 6 1/3 scoreless innings Friday night and was named the Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week on Monday.
Eisert, a marketing major from Beaverton, Ore., picked up his sixth win of the season as the Beavers downed the Huskies 1-0 in the series opener. Washington managed to move just two baserunners into scoring position against the lefty, but he stranded the runner at third in the sixth and reliever Christian Chamberlain spun a double play ball to end the seventh.
The honor is the first of Eisert’s career and the second for a Beaver hurler this year, following Bryce Fehmel on Feb. 19. Oregon State’s pitchers have earned the honor 94 times since the then-Pac-10 began the awards in 1986. That’s the most of any program.
Eisert is 6-0 this season and has a 0.30 earned run average, which is second nationally. He also has 44 strikeouts to just five walks, a K-to-walk ratio of 8.80 that ranks 16th.
