WAUSAU, WI (PR) - The Woodchucks welcome two players from Cal State Northridge to their 2013 roster. Joshua Goossen-Brown, a redshirt junior, brings plenty of collegiate experience to the team, while freshman teammate Anthony Cortez will look to continue to improve his game this summer.

As the teams primary closer, Goossen-Brown has racked up six saves and compiled a 1.88 ERA in 14.1 innings pitched. He has also performed well at the plate, hitting .276 with a team-leading 25 RBI.

Prior to redshirting in 2012, Goossen-Brown arrived at Northridge in 2011 after playing one season at Los Angeles Valley College. In his first season with the Matadors, Goossen-Brown performed well, hitting .275 with six doubles, one home run and nine RBI, while going 4-3 with a 4.74 ERA, five saves and 43 strikeouts on the mound.

Cortez, a relief pitcher for Northridge, has also performed well on the mound in his first season of college ball. Appearing in 11 games so far this season, Cortez has a 2.16 ERA and 12 strikeouts. A two-way player for Downey High School, was a three-year letter winner. His senior year he was named co-MVP of the San Gabriel Valley League and was chosen as an All-League First Team Selection.
