Nashville, Tenn. – Jeren Kendall has been named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week for his outstanding four-game stretch last week.
The Commodores’ leadoff hitter extended his streak of multi-hit games to six with four multi-hit games during the team’s 3-1 week. Kendall’s first career grand slam on Friday night was the difference in the series opening 4-3 win over Texas A&M. He added a single and two stolen bases in the victory. He backed it up on Saturday with a two-run homer as part of a three-hit game with three runs scored in the Dores’ blowout 17-3 win to clinch the team’s first-ever series against the Aggies. His two singles Sunday pushed the streak to six multi-hit games in a row and his season total to 11. He joined in on the offensive outburst on Wednesday night against Belmont, scoring three runs and adding a single and double to the team’s season-best 17 hits.
The weekly honor is the second of the season for Kendall, joining his National Player of the Week honor from Collegiate Baseball three weeks ago.
Vanderbilt returns to First Tennessee Park tomorrow night to take on Lipscomb at 6:30 p.m.
