Gonzalez - ORU baseballOral Roberts' Alex Gonzalez was named Pitcher of the week for his performance against No.12 Cal State Fullerton in last week's action.

Gonzalez captures his fifth career award and first this season after collecting the victory against the Titans. The sophomore went 7.2 innings with six strikeouts and only one walk. He surrendered five hits, all singles, and no runs in the 3-0 win. It was ORU's first victory over a ranked opponent since last season's win over No. 10 TCU in the NCAA Regionals.

Gonzalez improved his overall record to 2-1 with a 1.40 ERA and 16 strikeouts in 25.2 innings of work. Gonzalez suffered a back injury in late February causing him to miss several starts, but has since bounced back with quality starts his last two outings.
