??????????? ? TUCSON , Ariz. ?C?Arizona senior David Coulon has been named the national Proline Pitcher of the Week by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, as well as the Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week it was announced on Tuesday. Coulonˇ?s NCBWA honors automatically places him on the 2008 Roger Clemens Award watch list and his conference honors are the second in his four-year career at Arizona.

?

????????????The southpaw tied a career-high with 11 strikeouts and?tossed a one-hitter over eight dominating innings to help the Wildcats run their scoreless streak to 18 straight innings in a 3-0 win over the Islanders at the Whataburger College Classic in Corpus Christi, Texas, on Saturday.

?

The senior, who was perfect through the first four innings, had little trouble in his third start of the year, retiring the TAMUCC side in order in seven of his eight frames of work and recording at least one K in all eight innings, including the side in the eighth. He faced just two batters over the minimum for eight innings of work, allowing just a double and walk in the fifth, and worked out of?the jam (second and third with one out), with a flyout and a K to keep the Islanders off the board and preserve the shut out streak.

?

Coulon's effort on Saturday played a major part in a dominating pitching effort by the Wildcat staff. UA shut out all three opponents and finished the weekend with 39 strikeouts and only three walks in 27 innings pitched. South Alabama, TAMUCC and Notre Dame combined to collect just 11 hits for the weekend and bat a lowly .117.

?

Coulon and the top-ranked Wildcats return to action this weekend when they host No. 20 Cal State Fullerton in a three-game series at Kindall Field in Tucson. Coulon is slated to start Saturdayˇ?s 6 p.m. contest.
