Oregon State's Santos Named Pac-10 Baseball Player of the Week
May 31, 2010
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- OREGON STATE senior outfielder Adalberto Santos has been named the Pac-10 Baseball Player of the Week, while teammate sophomore right-handed pitcher Sam Gaviglio has been named the Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week for May 24-30, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.
Santos, of New York, N.Y., helped guide the Beavers to a 3-1 record last week, including a 2-1 series win over Arizona to close out the 2010 regular season. The senior outfielder was 8-for-15 from the plate for a .533 batting average. He accounted for eight runs, scoring four and driving in four, had two home runs, one double and triple and tallied a slugging percentage of 1.133. He also walked twice and was a perfect 4-for-4 in stolen base attempts. Santos has now reached base safely via hit or walk in 37-straight games. Santos finished the regular season leading the Beavers with a .337 batting average and stolen bases (18) and is second on the squad in home runs (10) and RBI (35).
This marks the first career Pac-10 Player of the Week honor for Adalberto and the 56th all-time Pac-10 Player of the Week selection for Oregon State.
In Saturday’s 5-0 victory over the Wildcats, Gaviglio notched a career-high 13 strikeouts in 7.2 innings of work. The sophomore right-hander from Ashland, Ore., walked just two batters and allowed five hits to improve to 3-3 this season and 13-4 lifetime at Oregon State. Gaviglio dominated the Wildcat hitters as he forced Arizona to for 1-for-14 with runners on base and 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position. Gaviglio finished the season with a 4.65 ERA, .257 opponent batting average and 44 strikeouts in 60.0 innings of work.
This is the first career Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week honor for Gaviglio and the 62nd all-time Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week selection for Oregon State.
