EUGENE, Ore. – Scott Heineman has been named the PAC-12 Conference Player of the Week after leading Oregon to a 4-0 record last week.
Heineman batted .438 (7-for-16) with three doubles, three home runs, six RBI and five runs scored as the Ducks went 4-0 on the road and earned their first conference road sweep since the program was reinstated in 2009. The Pacific Palisades, Calif. native, who finished the week with a .500 on-base percentage and a 1.188 slugging percentage, hit safely in all four outings and logged a pair of multiple-hit games against California over the weekend. Heineman, who entered the weekend with one career home run, went yard twice in Saturday’s 10-4 victory over the Bears and added a homer in Sunday’s 5-4 win in Berkeley. All three of his doubles and six of his seven hits came in the weekend set. He is batting .291 (37-127) on the year and has 24 RBI, a figure that ranks second on the team. He also ranks second on the squad with three home runs, and his 10 doubles rank third.
This is Heineman’s first career Pac-12 Player of the Week honor and Oregon’s ninth all-time selection. Ryon Healy was named player of the week earlier this season, while Cole Irvin claimed a pitcher of the week honor last month.
