Junior right-hander Justin Slaten was named Mountain West Pitcher of the Week. He is the second Lobo pitcher to receive this honor, and the fifth overall New Mexico player to get an honor from the conference.
During Saturday’s game against Fresno State, Slaten pitched for seven innings and allowed just one unearned run while scattering four hits.
Career-high 11 Ks and ZERO earned runs against league-leading Fresno State?! Oh you must be talking about the performance that got @JSlaten32 MW Pitcher of the Week honors! #GoLobos pic.twitter.com/sPsjmTEgwN
