Kingery Collects Pac-12 Player of the Week Honor

 TUCSON, Ariz. – University of Arizona baseball player Scott Kingery has been named the Pac-12 Player of the Week, it was announced Monday by the conference office.

Kingery helped lead Arizona to a three-game sweep of Eastern Michigan last weekend at Hi Corbett Field. The junior batted 7-for-13 with five runs batted in to go with four runs scored. He boosted his slugging percentage to 1.077 with a home run and two triples.

The Phoenix, Ariz., native collected his 100th career base hit in Friday's opener and followed with a career-high five hits in Saturday's contest. On Sunday, Kingery tallied another hit to extend his hitting streak to 10-straight games including the final seven of last season.

A Pac-12 All-Conference outfielder last season, Kingery has moved to second base where he started all three games against the Eagles. He was second on the team with nine assists over the weekend and he did not commit an error.

The weekly honor is the second in Kingery's career after he garnered the award early in the 2014 season.

Kingery was named to several preseason All-America teams, including lists released by Baseball America, D1Baseball.com and Collegiate Baseball.

Arizona (3-0) returns to action Tuesday night at 6 p.m. (MST) to begin a two-game midweek series against North Dakota State (0-3), which is coached by UA alum Tod Brown.
