LOS ANGELES - USC sophomore right-hander Kyle Davis was named a Louisville Slugger National Player of the Week by Collegiate Baseball for the week of May 19-25 as he earned either the save or win in all three of the Trojans' victories last week.
Davis (Garden Grove, Calif./Pacifica HS) eighth save of the year with one inning of no-hit ball during a 6-3 win over Grand Canyon. Then he added his ninth save of the season, good for ninth on the all-time Trojan single-season saves list, in game one of a three-game series against No. 1 Oregon St.
In game three of the OSU series, he started for the first time this season, and only the second time in his career, throwing a complete game with 14 strikeouts as he held the Beavers to just five hits during a 3-1 win. His 14 strikeouts were the most by a Trojan pitcher since the 2008 season. The only run he allowed was unearned.
Davis finished his outstanding season with nine saves and a 1.12 ERA with a 3-4 record. He led all Trojan pitchers with 26 appearances and struck out an impressive 57 batters in 56.1 innings of work.
The other National Players of the Week included Cal State Fullerton right-handed pitcher Justin Garza, Louisiana-Lafayette shortstop Blake Trahan, Kennesaw State designated hitter Brennan Morgan, Dallas Baptist shortstop Camden Duzenack and Siena first baseman Vincent Citro.
