April 4, 2012


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Colorado State freshman outfielder Shae Rodriguez and junior righthander Kacie McCarthy have been named Mountain West Player and Pitcher of the Week, respectively, for games through April 1. This is the second career MW weekly accolade for McCarthy and first for Rodriguez.

Hailing from Westminster, Colo., Rodriguez went 2-for-2 with two runs scored and one RBI in Colorado State's 8-0 shutout of in-state rival Northern Colorado last Wednesday. She was one of three Rams to hit a home run in the third inning, blasting a solo shot over the right field fence. Rodriguez finished the game with slugging and on-base percentages of 2.500 and 1.000, respectively.

McCarthy made the start against Northern Colorado last Wednesday, surrendering just two hits over five scoreless innings of work. The Shingletown, Calif., native fanned four batters and walked three en route to earning the victory.
