Feb. 22, 2005
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - ARIZONA junior outfielder Trevor Crowe and OREGON STATE sophomore left-handed pitcher Anton Maxwell have been named Pac-10 Baseball Player and Pitcher of the Week for the week of February 15-21, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Crowe, from Portland, Ore., led Arizona to a 3-1 record last week, defeating rival Arizona State and taking a 2-1 series victory on the road at UT-Pan American. The third-year starter led all Arizona players with a .529 batting average, nine hits (including a double, a triple and two home runs), a team-best eight RBI, five runs scored and a 1.059 slugging percentage. Crowe collected at least one hit in all four games to extend his team-best hitting streak to 18-straight games. He also walked a team-high six times to help him to a .652 on-base percentage in the four games. In Friday's series-opener at UTPA he hit two home runs and tied his career-high with six RBI.
Maxwell, from Anchorage, Alaska, took a no-hitter into the eighth inning of Oregon State's 8-0 victory over UC Davis on Feb. 19. In 7.1 innings of work, he allowed just one hit and one walk, while striking out eight Aggie batters. Maxwell's no-hitter was broken up by UC Davis right fielder Kyle Irving, who hit a single to start the eighth. He also yielded a walk to lead off the first inning. In between, Maxwell retired 21 straight UC Davis batters. In earning the victory, his first of the season, Maxwell also gave Oregon State head coach Pat Casey his 300th win as skipper of the Beavers.
The Player of the Week honor is the second for Crowe, while it is the 43rd such honor for Arizona. The Pitcher of the Week honor is the first-ever for Maxwell and the 55th selection all-time for Oregon State.
