San Jose State shortstop Kyle Bellows and Louisiana Tech right-handed pitcher Dylan Moseley have been named the Western Athletic Conference Baseball Hitter and Pitcher of the Week, respectively, for Mar. 2-8.

Bellows, a junior from San Jose, Calif. (Santa Teresa HS), hit .818 in helping the Spartans to a three-game sweep over Pacific last week, extending SJSU's record to a perfect 9-0. Bellows went 9-for-11 at the plate with six runs scored, two RBI, a double and a triple. He also walked once and was hit by a pitch. On Friday night, Bellows singled and scored the Spartans' final two runs in a 5-4 win in Pacific's home opener. On Saturday, Bellows' third-inning RBI double tied the game at 2-2. He scored soon after to regain a 3-2 edge for SJSU, who then cruised to the win as Bellows finished 3-for-4 at the plate with a double, a walk, two runs scored and an RBI. In Sunday's finale, Bellows went 3-for-3 with a hit-by-pitch, triple, two runs scored, one RBI, and a single-game career-high two steals as SJSU finished with the 6-3 victory.

Moseley, a senior from Texarkana, Ark. (Arkansas HS), pitched a complete game shutout in a 10-0 victory over Eastern Michigan. He allowed only six hits and one walk, while striking out two.
