McClellan, from Liberal, Kan., became the first Sun Devil to notch back-to-back complete games since 1999, striking out a career-high 10 batters in a seven-inning win against UNLV. He allowed just four hits and did not allow a run in the 10-0 win over the Rebels. McClellan is tied for the team lead in wins with a 4-2 record and has a 2.10 ERA in 30.0 innings pitched. Has struck out 36 batters and walked only 14.
Berry, from Richardson, Texas, hit .500 (9-for-18) with four home runs and 11 RBI in four games last week. Berry put together multi-hit performances at the plate in each game. He hit two home runs in the Bruins second game at Cal State Northridge and added an outfield assist to throw a runner out at home plate. Berry also was a perfect 2-for-2 in stolen bases.
The Player of the Week honor is the first for Berry in his career, and the 36th selection all-time for UCLA. The Pitcher of the Week honor is the first for McClellan in his career, and the 43rd selection all-time for Arizona State.
