Joey Wagman Junior, Pitcher, 6-0, 180, Danville, Calif. (Monte Vista HS)

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- Junior right-hander Joey Wagman, who earned his first career complete game Friday night, has been selected as the Coca-Cola/Cal Poly Student-Athlete of the Week.

One week after allowing one unearned run and four hits over eight innings with 10 strikeouts against CSU Bakersfield, Wagman went the distance for his first career complete game -- high school and college -- with a five-hitter in a 5-1 win over UC Santa Barbara.

Wagman struck out three and the lone run he allowed was in the eighth inning when Cal Poly was leading 5-0. Wagman (8-3), who moved over the century mark in innings pitched, picked up his eighth win of the year and lowered his ERA to 2.42.

Wagman had pitched eight innings five previous times this season, but never worked the ninth until Friday night. Twice this season he has recorded a career-high 10 strikeouts -- in a no-decision against San Diego State on March 22 and 10 more in the win over CSU Bakersfield on May 11.

Cal Poly, which swept UC Santa Barbara for its fifth weekend series sweep of the season, has won 11 of its last 14 games to move 13 games above the .500 mark for the first time this season.

Wagman, a business administration major, has won the award twice before -- following a season-opening 6-0 win over Oklahoma State when he pitched eight scoreless innings and after scattering seven hits over eight scoreless innings in a 6-0 win over UC Irvine.

Cal Poly (33-20, 13-8 Big West) closes out the 2012 regular season this weekend with a three-game Big West series at UC Riverside (21-28, 9-12 Big West) Friday through Sunday.
