Arizona's Bandy Named Pac-10 Baseball Player of the Week
March 22, 2010
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- ARIZONA sophomore catcher Jett Bandy has been named the Pac-10 Baseball Player of the Week and OREGON STATE junior left-handed pitcher Tanner Robles has been named the Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week for March 15-21, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.
Bandy of Thousand Oaks, Calif., led the Wildcats to a pair of sweeps over Wichita State and Sacramento State to help push Arizona’s winning streak to 11 games. The sophomore catcher went 11-for-18 for a .611 batting average and accounted for 15 runs on the week, scoring eight and driving in seven. He had a slugging percentage of .778 and an on-base percentage of .600. For the season, Bandy leads the Pac-10 in batting average (.506), hits (41), doubles (11) and runs scored (30).
This marks the first-career Pac-10 Player of the Week honor for Bandy and Arizona’s 54th all-time Pac-10 Player of the Week selection.
The junior left-hander Robles improved to 4-1 on the season after holding Maine to just two hits and one run in the Beavers 12-2 victory. In the second game of a doubleheader, the Murray, Utah native went eight full innings and struck out 12 batters, as he posted career bests in both categories. In the process, the lefty lowered his ERA to 1.72 in 31.1 innings of work. In his last three starts, Robles has allowed just two earned runs in 22.1 innings, while striking out 28 batters.
This is the first-career Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week selection for Robles and the 60th all-time honoree for Oregon State.
