BATON ROUGE, La. – LSU outfielder Brennan Breaux was named on Monday the Southeastern Conference Co-Freshman of the Week by the league office.
Breaux shared the honor with Kentucky pitcher Sean Hjelle.
Breaux, a native of Scott, La., helped lead LSU to a three-game series sweep last weekend over Arkansas. Breaux batted .667 (4-for-6) in the series with one double, four RBI and a .714 on-base percentage.
Breaux entered Saturday’s Game 2 in the sixth inning and responded by going 3-for-3 at the plate, including a two-run double in the bottom of the ninth inning. The double highlighted a four-run rally to send the contest into extra innings before LSU won in 10 innings, 10-9.
Breaux started in left field on Sunday and responded by delivering a two-out, two-run single that scored two runs in the second inning and proved to be the game-winning hit in the Tigers ‘ 7-1 victory
