Dixie State junior outfielder/DH Ryan Rodriguez was named Pacific West Conference Baseball Newcomer of the Week for his efforts in the Storm’s four-game series split at nationally-ranked Colorado Mesa last weekend.

Rodriguez (6-foot-4, 220; Folsom, California/Vista Del Lago HS/Butte CC) hit .571 (8-for-14) in four starts with two doubles, two RBIs and one run scored. He collected two hits in all four games in the series and posted a .714 slugging percentage and .646 on-base percentage.

Dixie State (12-2), which is ranked 12th in this week’s Collegiate Baseball Weekly national poll, opens PacWest Conference play this weekend with a four-game home series vs. conference co-favorite California Baptist at Bruce Hurst Field.
