BIG TEN BASEBALL PLAYERS OF THE WEEK

PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Zach Hurley, Ohio State
Sr., LF, Springboro, Ohio/Springboro
Hurley led the Buckeyes to a 3-1 record last weekend with wins over Duquesne, St. Louis and Fairleigh Dickinson. The senior hit .571 over four games, reaching base at a .609 clip and slugging at a 1.048 rate for an OPS of 1.657. The left-fielder recorded multiple hits in every game, including a 5-for-5 performance on Sunday against the Knights. Hurley also scored six runs and drove in seven over the weekend, recording seven extra-base hits with five doubles, a triple and a home run, coming a single shy of the cycle in Game 1 against the Billikens on Saturday. The weekly honor is the first of Hurley’s career and the second for a Buckeye position player this season.

PITCHER OF THE WEEK
Francis Brooke, Northwestern
So., RHP, Washington, D.C./St. Albans School

Brooke takes home his first career Pitcher of the Week accolade after leading Northwestern to a 3-0 win over Loyola Marymount on Saturday at the Dairy Queen Classic in Minneapolis, Minn. The sophomore struck out six and allowed just three hits without surrendering a walk in eight shutout innings, picking up his second win of the season. The right-hander faced just one batter over the minimum in his first seven innings, and his six strikeouts sets a career high.
