Power display lands Cal Poly's Torres Big West honor

After all five of his hits went for extra bases, Cal Poly right fielder Nick Torres received the Big West Baseball Field Player of the Week award.

The sophomore tallied two doubles and three home runs and 7 RBI in a 2-1 series victory at the University of Washington. He hit .417 (5 for 12) and posted a 1.333 slugging percentage against the Pac-12 Huskies. Torres' offensive output helped Cal Poly improve to 9-1 on the season.

A first inning RBI double by Torres on Sunday put the Mustangs up 1-0. At that point, Torres had driven in all seven Cal Poly runs in the series. Torres opened the series Friday going 2-for-4 with a double and a homer in a 2-1 loss.

On Saturday, Torres added two more blasts, a two-run and a three-run shot, the latter overcoming a 2-0 Washington lead in the fourth inning. He finished that game 2-for-4 with five RBI and accounted for the game-winning RBI and run scored.

The Mustangs open a two-game home series with Holy Cross on Tuesday at 6pm before opening a three game series at Kansas State on Friday.
