"LOUISVILLE SLUGGER'S" NATIONAL PLAYERS OF THE WEEK

bullet

P Beau Hale, Texas: Hale recorded the 18th no-hitter in University of Texas history when he blanked Sam Houston St., 10-0 in a 9-inning contest. Not one ball was hit out of the infield (13 ground outs, 13 strikeouts and 1 pop-up to shortstop). Hale flirted with a perfect game as he only walked one batter and his defense committed only one error. He retired the side in order in eight of nine innings.

P David Talamantez, Lamar: Making his collegiate debut as a freshman, Talamantez threw the 15th no-hitter in Lamar history in a 4-0 win over Mississippi Valley St. He struck out nine and didn't walk a batter in the 7-inning contest. The first hitter of the game reached on an error by Talamantez when he dropped a popped up bunt. Otherwise he would have pitched a perfect game. He retired 21 straight batters the rest of the game. This was Lamar's first no-hitter since the 1993 season.

bulletOF Gabe Gross, Auburn: Gross was a one man RBI machine last week as he knocked in 19 runners in five games. He belted three homers and four doubles as he went 14-for-24 at the plate. His most impressive game was against Samford when he belted back-to-back home runs and compiled 8 RBIs.
