University of Hawaii pitcher Josh Slaats has been named the Verizon Western Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week for April 19-25.

Slaats, a junior from San Ramon, Calif., pitched a complete-game shutout at Louisiana Tech last week.

Slaats struck out four while allowing just five hits and two walks in the seven-inning 10-0 victory that was called due to the WAC's run rule.

The win was Slaats' second complete-game shutout of the season. He is 4-2 with a 1.71 ERA, with 56 strikeouts in 52.2 innings pitched.

UH split its four-game road series with Louisiana Tech.

The Rainbows play host to Nevada Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
