Sophomore right fielder Billy Susdorf was named Pac-10 Player of the Week on Tuesday after hitting two home runs in the Bruins' opening series against Cal State Northridge.
Susdorf hit .533 (8-for-15) with two home runs, one double and seven RBI in three games last week. The Newhall native put together multi-hit performances at the plate in each game. He hit his first home run of the season in the season opener and notched a 1.000 slugging percentage over the weekend with 15 total bases and six runs scored. His hits, runs scored and RBI were all tops among UCLA batters.
The honor was the first of Susdorf's career and the first given out by the conference this season. Also honored was Arizona State pitcher Jered Liebeck, with the Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week award.
