TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State sophomore starting pitcher Ryan Schroyer has been named the Collegiate Baseball National Pitcher of the Week after his 11-strikeout performance against Southern Utah on Feb. 1.
Schroyer, a sophomore who was 2-2 and was a honorable mention freshman All-American in 2001, allowed only three hits in 6.2 shutout innings to help lead ASU to the 12-0 defeat of Southern Utah. A high school All-American at Canyon del Oro in 2000, Schroyer was a 16th round selection of the Detroit Tigers in the MLB June Amateur Draft.
The Sun Devils are off to a perfect 4-0 start with two wins over Southern Utah and single victories over Oregon State and Oral Roberts in the inaugural Bill Kajikawa Baseball Classic held over the weekend at Hohokam Park in Mesa. The Devils remained ranked No. 20 by Collegiate Baseball when the new poll was released to day and will be looking to move up from their No. 17 and No. 18 rankings by Baseball Weekly/ESPN and Baseball America when those two polls are released later today.
