Bobby LaFromboise NAMED MWC PITCHER OF THE WEEK ... In his first appearance in two weeks, Bobby LaFromboise threw his first complete game of the season in UNM's 5-2 series opening win over league-leading San Diego State. After giving up two earned runs in the second inning, the Downey, Calif., native, did not allow a base runner past second base for the rest of the game, giving up just two hits and striking out seven to bring home the victory. LaFromboise is the third Lobo to earn a weekly honor from the conference this season.

• SPORTSMANSHIP NIGHT ON APRIL 15 ... The Lobos will be hosting Sportsmanship Night on Tuesday, April 15, when the nationally-ranked Arizona Wildcats come to Isotopes Park. Joining Lobo fans that evening will be famous Texas Tech Heckler Chris Snead. Snead is well know for his heckling of opponents in a sporting manner at Texas Tech baseball games.
