Verizon WAC Softball Hitter and Pitcher of the Week
Doiron, a senior second baseman from Slidell, La. (Northshore HS), led Tech to a 2-1 record against Nevada, going 6-for-10 with a .600 batting average. She had at least one hit in each game, including a career-high-tying three hits in the series finale. Doiron had two hits, two runs and two RBI in a 12-4 win in game one. She came back with three hits in three at bats and one RBI in the 3-1 win in the third game of the series.
Moses, a junior from Paso Robles, Calif., went 2-0 with a pair of complete game shutouts and a save in 16.0 innings of scoreless ball to lead the Bulldogs to a three-game WAC sweep of No. 25 Hawai’i. For the week, she allowed just two hits and posted a 0.00 ERA with 13 strikeouts. She opened the week by tossing her first career no-hitter to lead Fresno State to a 5-0 victory over Hawai’i before a national television audience on ESPNU. It marked the first no-hitter by any opponent against Hawai’i since Tennessee’s Monica Abbott in 2007. Moses struck out 11 and faced two more than the minimum. On Saturday, she made her first relief appearance of the year with two perfect innings to close out a 2-1 victory for her first save of the year and third of her career. Later in the day, Moses recorded her second complete-game shutout in as many days, allowing only two hits and a pair of walks to complete the sweep and extend Fresno State’s win streak to seven.
