Arizona State senior Richy Leon has been named the Pac-10 Southern Division pitcher of the week. In his first start and only third appearance on the season, Leon handed top-ranked Stanford its only loss of the season, 4-2, this past Sunday.
The native of San Luis, Ariz., tossed 6.1 innings, allowed six hits, one earned run, two walks and struck out five.
It is Leon's first Pac-10 weekly honor of his career.
