  • WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — Oregon State sophomore outfielder Michael Conforto was named the Pac-12 Conference player of the week on Tuesday.
    Conforto slammed four home runs and drove in 12 in the Beavers' four-game sweep of Bryant at Goss Stadium. He came into the series with no home runs and four RBIs but went 7-for-12 with two walks, all 12 RBIs and the four homers over the last three games of the series.
    Conforto has a Pac-12 leading .711 slugging percentage, and his 16 RBIs are good for second. He's batting .356, which is second on the club to Dylan Davis' .395.
    The honor is the first of Conforto's career and the second weekly award for the Beavers this season after Matt Boyd was named the Pac-12 pitcher of the week last week.
    The Beavers host Texas State Friday.
