Arizona State's MacPhee Named Pac-10 Baseball Player of the Week
April 12, 2010
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- ARIZONA STATE sophomore second baseman Zach MacPhee has been named the Pac-10 Baseball Player of the Week and OREGON STATE junior right-handed pitcher Greg Peavey has been named the Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week for April 5-11, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.
MacPhee of Phoenix, Ariz., was an offensive machine for the Sun Devils last week, as he went 12-for-22 for a .545 batting average and slugging percentage of 1.045. The sophomore second baseman hit three home runs and one triple for a combined 23 total bases. He was responsible for 21 runs, scoring eight runs and driving in 13. For the season, MacPhee leads the Conference in multiple offensive categories, including batting average (.445), slugging percentage (.818), on-base percentage (537), RBI (43) and triples (10).
This marks the second-career Pac-10 Player of the Week honor for MacPhee and the Conference leading 93rd all-time Pac-10 Player of the Week selection for Arizona State.
Peavey was outstanding on Friday, pitching his second complete game of the season, as the Beavers defeated No. 3 UCLA, 4-1. The Vancouver, Wash., native held the Bruins to only two hits. UCLA came into the game batting .347, tops in the Conference. The junior right-hander had one stretch in which he retired 16 of 17 batters and another one with 10 of 11 batters, respectively. Peavey lowered his ERA to 1.91. For the season, he is 3-0, with four quality starts. Team are batting .167 against him, while Pac-10 teams are batting .098 against him in league play.
This is the second-career Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week selection for Peavey and the 61st all-time Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week selection for Oregon State.
