THURMAN NAMED ESPN ZONE ANAHEIM ANTEATER OF THE WEEK

Irvine, Calif. -- UC Irvine men's baseball player Andrew Thurman has been named this week's ESPN Zone Anaheim Anteater of the Week.

The junior right-hander from Orange had another stellar performance in his Anteater career. Thurman pitched his seventh career complete game after going the distance in a 10-4 win over Long Beach State Thursday at Cicerone Field at Anteater Ballpark. He tied a career-high with 11 strikeouts, a personal mark he set earlier this season in a complete game effort against Nebraska. He has now recorded 224 strikeouts to move into No. 8 in the UCI career records. Thurman finishes the season as the team leader in strikeouts (90) and innings pitched (100.1).

The Anteaters finish the season with a 33-22 overall record, the sixth consecutive winning season under Mike Gillespie, and with a 15-12 mark in the Big West.
