Pair of WSU baseball players named all-conference

Nick Tanielu - WSU Athletic Communications

Nick Tanielu and Ian Hamilton picked up the prestigious designation on Wednesday.

WSU baseball players Nick Tanielu and Ian Hamilton were named to the Pac-12's all-conference team as voted on by the league's coaches, the conference announced on Wednesday. 

Tanielu followed up on the promise he showed before an injury cut his 2013 season short by leading WSU in batting average (.340, sixth in the Pac-12) and finishing just behind Yale Rosen in on-base percentage (.395) and slugging percentage (.442) thanks to his team-leading 15 doubles. He also played excellent defense at third base.

Hamilton, meanwhile, set a school record for saves with 15. The freshman struck out 24 and walked 12 in 30 innings of work. 

The duo were part of the 32-man* first team.

*Not a typo.

In somewhat of a surprise, Rosen was merely an honorable mention despite having arguably a better season than Tanielu. The batting average was considerably lower (just .294 after a late-season tailspin), but he finished with just one fewer total base than Tanielu. Starting pitcher Joe Pistorese also was named honorable mention; he was a workhorse with 98 innings pitched and finished with a 3.31 ERA. 

Congratulations to these Cougs!
