SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - After sweeping then No. 4 ranked Long Beach State last weekend (April 30-May 2) the UCSB Baseball team has been named Team of the Week by college baseball internet site, CollegeBaseballInsider.com. The honor marks the first time UC Santa Barbara has received such accolades from the online publication.
The announcement comes on the heels of UCSB relief pitcher Loren Fraser being named Big West Conference Pitcher of the Week for his contributions to last week's sweep. Fraser tossed 3.1 scoreless innings of relief and allowed just one hit while recording two saves against Long Beach State.
Santa Barbara heads into this weekend's three-game Big West matchup against Cal State Northridge with a 27-17 overall record and a 5-7 conference mark.
