The College Baseball Blog continues our tradition of naming National Player and Pitcher of the Week. This week we honor Dusty Robinson of Fresno State as our Player of the Week while San Diego RHP Kyle Blair is our Pitcher of the Week.
Robinson helped Fresno State to a four game sweep of WAC leader New Mexico State, bringing them within half a game of the Aggies. Dusty went 12-21 in the four games, hitting 4 homeruns, 2 doubles and a triple while accumulating 11 runs and 12 RBI. Robinson had a slugging percentage of 1.333 on the week, as well as an on base percentage of .619.
Kyle Blair was absolutely dazzling in the first game of a three game set against the Portland Pilots. San Diego traveled up to Portland trying to derail the Pilots’ 11-game winning streak, and Kyle Blair did that by coming within one strike of a no-hitter until Kris Kaupilla hit a two-strike double. Throwing 15 strikeouts in a complete game shutout, Blair solidified San Diego’s spot at the top of the West Coast Conference, and with the sweep, all but sealed the postseason bid for the Toreros, as they are now 4 games ahead of Portland with 6 games to play.
