BRADENTON, Fla. -- The Weber State University baseball club team won the National Club Baseball Association world championship on Monday.

WSU defeated the defending national champion Texas A&M Aggies, 4-0 at McEachnie Field, to take home the title.

Starting pitcher Tim Zach pitched a complete game shutout, allowing just four hits in seven innings and striking out five Aggies.

For his effort, Zach was tabbed the tournament most valuable player and also earned invitations to the Pittsburgh Pirates' and Cincinnati Reds' training camps.

Outfielders J.D. Spendlove, B.J. Misik and Dylan Hunt also received invitations from big league clubs.

Hunt smashed a three-run home run over the 370-foot mark in left center field in the bottom of first inning to give the Wildcats the lead.

An RBI double in the fifth inning by Misik sealed the victory.

WSU set an NCBA record by allowing just three runs in 28 innings.
