Missouri baseball player Trey Harris did some raking last week.
The rightfielder smashed five home runs in five games for the Tigers and was rewarded Monday by being named National Player of the Week by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper.
Harris went deep five times in five games for the Tigers, including homering in four straight at-bats in a weekend series against the Kentucky Wildcats at Columbia’s Taylor Stadium. Harris homered three times in the Saturday game against UK, and Mizzou went 1-2 in the series and 3-2 in the week.
For the week, Harris drove in eight runs and scored seven times.
The junior from Powder Springs, Ga., is the first Mizzou player to win the award since Tanner Houck did it last year. Harris is third in the SEC with 11 home runs, the most for a Mizzou player since 2012.
For the season, Harris is hitting .298 with 40 RBIs. He was an All-SEC Freshman Team selection in 2015 after hitting .263 with four home runs. As a sophomore last year, he hit just .213 with one home run.
Mizzou (26-11, 7-8) resumes play Tuesday at home against Missouri State and then is in Oxford for three games against Ole Miss this weekend.
