Conley Named Pac-10 Player Of The Week
April 13, 2009
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Washington right fielder Kyle Conley was named the Pac-10 Conference Baseball Player of the Week, the conference office announced today.
Last week, Conley led the Huskies to four wins in five games -- a win and a loss at Gonzaga and a three-game sweep of California at Husky Stadium. Over the five games, the redshirt-junior from Richland, Wash., went 11-for-16 (.688) at the plate, with three home runs, five doubles, nine runs scored, nine runs batted in and eight walks.
He also stole a base, had an on-base average of .792 and slugged 1.563.
Thursday vs. California, he was 3-for-3 with three runs, five RBI and two homers, including a grand slam. Saturday vs. the Bears, he was 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles. In the one game last week in which he didn't get a hit -- Tuesday at Gonzaga -- he drew four walks.
Conley, who was also honored as Pac-10 Player of the Week on March 10 of this year, currently leads the league with 13 home runs.
Next up for the Huskies is a three-game series at UCLA this Friday through Sunday. All three of those games will air live on KKNW AM-1150 radio.
