WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Washington first baseman Curt Rindal has been named the Pac-10 Conference Baseball Player of the Week, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Rindal, a senior from Mt. Vernon, Wash., led the Huskies to four wins last week, one over Southern Utah last Tuesday and a three-game sweep of Pacific over the weekend. In those four games, Rindal went 11-for-18 (.611) at the plate. He hit three doubles and two home runs, while driving in a total of seven runs. He also scored three times and didn't strike out.
The lone senior on the Husky roster, Rindal is currently hitting .340 on the year and leads the UW with four homers and 12 runs batted in.
An All-Pac-10 first-team selection last season, Rindal has been named Pac-10 Player of the Week once before in his career.
The conference office also recognized Arizona pitcher Preston Guilmet as the Pitcher of the Week. Guilmet struck out 12 in eight shutout innings for a win over Hawaii last weekend.
The Huskies close out a 12-game homestand this weekend as Cal State Northridge visits Husky Ballpark for a three-game series Friday through Sunday.
