WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – Arizona State University starting right-hander Darin Gillies has been named Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week after he led the Sun Devils to an 8-6 series-clinching win over No. 9 Oregon on May 11.
Gillies did not allow an earned run on just two hits in six innings to secure his first win since Feb. 27. He struck out three and did not allow an extra-base hit to improve to 2-4 on the season. It marked his third start of the season in which he did not concede an earned run across six or more innings.
He bookended a perfect first inning with a pair of swinging strikeouts and stranded a pair of runners in scoring position in the third inning en route to his sixth quality start of the season.
This is Gillies’ first career Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week nod and the 65th overall for the Sun Devils. He is the second Sun Devil to earn a weekly award this season.
May 12 – Gilles, Jr., RHP
April 28 – Ryan Kellogg, Soph., LHP
