LOS ANGELES — Jack Brancheau was named to the SCIAC D3baseball.com Team of the Week on Tuesday after an outstanding opening weekend.
Brancheau, a senior outfielder from Scottsdale, Ariz., led Oxy to a 3-0 start to the year, hitting .625 and slugging .800, with an on base percentage of 1.125. He went 5 for 8 with a home run, a double, four RBIs, five runs and six walks.
The Tigers beat Puget Sound in a pair of games by a combined scored of 20-5 on opening day and then beat Willamette 9-5.
Brancheau is one of two Oxy baseball players that got some recognition for outstanding play last weekend. Nolan McCarthy was named the SCIAC Pitcher of the week after striking out 11 players with just two walks and no earned runs, in six innings pitched against Puget Sound.
The Tigers are back in action against Claremont-Mudd-Scripps this weekend.Follow Oxy Athletics on Twitter Sign Up for Newsletters Watch on Youtube Follow us on Instagram
