Trevor Crowe Named Pac-10 Baseball Player of the Week
May 18, 2004
WALNUT CREEK, Calif.- Arizona sophomore Trevor Crowe has been named the Pac-10 Baseball Player of the Week, commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Crowe, from Portland, Ore., helped lead the Wildcats to a conference series victory over Pac-10-leading Stanford this past Saturday-Monday. The switch-hitting outfielder batted .583 (7 for 12) with a team-high nine RBI and seven runs scored. A total of six of Crowe's seven hits in the three-game series went for extra bases as the second-year starter finished with three doubles, two triples and a home run.
In Saturday's series opening 11-9 loss he finished just 1 for 5, but tallied three RBI on a pair run-scoring ground outs and his first of three doubles against the Cardinal pitchers in the series.
In Sunday's improbable 19-18 come-from-behind victory, Crowe went a perfect 4 for 4 at the plate with two doubles and two triples. He scored an Arizona Pac-10 game school record five runs and drove in three more. His run and RBI total in the game accounted for 42 percent of UA's 19 runs in the contest.
On Sunday he helped lead the offensive charge to the series win with a 2 for 3, three-RBI day at the plate. He hit his fourth home run of the season, a solo shot to left in the seventh inning, to cap off his award-winning series.
The player of the week recognition is the first in Crowe's career and the second consecutive week a Wildcat player has been feted with the honor. A total of 41 Arizona players have been recognized by the conference with the weekly award in school history.
Teammates Koley Kolberg (March 2) and Scott Burns (May 4) have each been named the Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week once this year and Jordan Brown (May 11) was last week's player of the week to bring Arizona's season total to four players/pitchers.
UCLA's Wes Whisler was named the Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week after tossing a complete-game shutout against Washington State last Sunday.
Arizona will return to action Friday when rival Arizona State comes to town for a three-game conference series at Kindall Field. First pitch for the series opener is scheduled for 7 pm.
