CORVALLIS, Ore. - Oregon State first baseman Andy Jarvis was named the Pacific-10 Baseball Player of the Week for April 29-May 5, it was announced Monday. Jarvis (Renton, Wash./Liberty HS), a junior, had three hits in each game to help Oregon State to a three-game sweep at Washington State.
Oregon State (30-15 overall, 9-6 Pacific-10) also broke into one of the four national polls on Monday, being ranked 35th by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. The Beavers again received votes in the Baseball Weekly/ESPN coaches poll, picking up nine points good for a tie for 39th position.
Jarvis batted .563 (9-for-16) with three home runs, two doubles, 11 runs batted in and six runs scored; he walked once, was hit by a pitch once and did not strike out during the series. In the first game of the weekend, he homered twice and drove in eight runs.
Jarvis' honor was the second in as many weeks for the Beavers. Sophomore righthander Ben Rowe was named the Pitcher of the Week for April 22-28 after pitching a four-hitter against nationally-ranked Stanford.
The Beavers continue their run at a berth in a NCAA Regional this weekend with a series at California. Games are set for Friday at 2:30 p.m., Saturday at 1 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m.; all three games can be heard on KLOO-AM (1340) and Saturday's game will be televised live by Fox Sports Net.
