KINGMAN - Sophomore Tarik Skubal (Kingman Academy, 2014) fanned 13 for Seattle University in the Redhawks' 4-1 win over Saint Mary's Sunday in Moraga, Calif. Skubal (1-0) pitched seven scoreless innings and gave up three hits and issued one walk.
The win prevented a four-game sweep by the Gaels and gave Seattle (1-3) its first win of the season.
The next day, Skubal was selected as one of the Louisville Slugger National Players of the Week by Collegiate Baseball.
Last season, Skubal was named as a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American and Second Team All-Western Athletic Conference when he went 7-4 with a 3.24 earned run average.
Skubal continues to be Seattle's Sunday starter and is projected to face Bowling Green this week.
