DENVER – New Mexico State first baseman Tanner Rust and Fresno State pitcher Cody Kendall have been named the Verizon Western Athletic Conference Baseball Hitter and Pitcher of the Week, respectively, for May 14-20.

Rust, a sophomore from Lakeside, Calif. (El Capitan HS), hit .500 (10-for-20) with five runs scored, two doubles, a triple, a home run, five RBI and one walks as the Aggies went 4-1 on the week with a win over CSU Bakersfield and a three-game series sweep at San Jose State. Rust had 43 putouts, three assists and only one error on defense through his five games last week. In a 12-10 loss at rival New Mexico, Rust went 3-for-5 at the plate with his first home run of the season. He also picked up two RBI at New Mexico. Rust recorded a sacrifice fly in game two at San Jose State to secure a 4-2 win over the Spartans. Rust then finished the week leading the Aggie offense going 4-for-4 at the plate with a triple, three runs scored and two RBI as the Aggies won their regular-season finale 15-2 at SJSU.

Kendall, a senior from Clovis, Calif. (Clovis East HS), pitched a seven-inning run-rule 12-2 victory over Louisiana Tech last week.

He also allowed no earned runs.
