TexasTech.com

A Texas Tech baseball player has earned a second weekly honor from the Big 12 Conference.

Tech sophomore first baseman Eric Gutierrez has been named as the Big 12 Player of the Week for the second time this season.

Gutierrez, a Mission, Texas native, is the sixth Red Raider to earn the award twice in a season, and the first since Stephen Hagen in 2011.

He was given the award following Tech’s series sweep over Oklahoma, Tech’s first sweep over the Sooners since 2002.

Gutierrez made his eighth, ninth, and 10th home runs of the season during the final two games of Tech’s series sweep over Oklahoma. Tech has now swept three straight weekend series, two of them against Big 12 opponents.

He currently leads the Big 12 with 10 home runs, 48 RBI, 104 total bases, and slugging percentage.

The Red Raiders will next play Oral Roberts on Tuesday, April 29th in Tulsa, with a 6 p.m. first pitch at J.L. Johnson Stadium. They will finish the week with a three-game series at Kansas on May 2nd through the 4th.
