Cajuns’ Davis Named Louisville Slugger National Player of the Week
Louisiana’s Greg Davis made the most of his opportunity over the weekend.
Tony Robichaux inserted Davis into the lineup in game two of Saturday’s doubleheader against South Alabama. Now, he’s trying to find a way to keep him in the lineup.
For his performance, Davis, a native of Ovilla, TX, has been named one of eight to the weekly Louisville Slugger National Players of the Week by Collegiate Baseball.
Davis was 6-8 in the two games over the weekend in which he received a start. In Saturday’s 8-7 win, Davis had three hits, scored twice and drove in five runs. His grand slam home run got the Cajuns on the board in the second inning. He singled and scored another run. Then, with two out in the ninth inning and the score tied, he delivered the game winning hit.
But Davis wasn’t finished.
Sunday, Davis had three more hits and drove in another three runs. For the week, he hit .750 (6-8), had a .778 on-base percentage and slugged 1.250. He finished with eight rbi for the weekend, after driving in just six runs in limited action this season.
Amazinglly, Davis was shunned as the Sun Belt Player of the Week. That award went to UT Arlington’s Ryan Bottger
