LSU third baseman Tommy White named SEC Player of the Week

LSU third baseman Tommy White was named SEC Player of the Week after he led the Tigers in their SEC series-opening two out of three over Texas A&M this past weekend.

 LSU sophomore third baseman Tommy White was named SEC Player of the Week on Monday by the league office.

White batted .474 (9-for-19) in LSU’s four games last week and helped lead the Tigers to an SEC series victory at No. 11 Texas A&M. He collected one double, one homer, 11 RBI and seven runs in the Tigers’ four games versus New Orleans and Texas A&M, and he extended his current hitting streak to 14 games.

In LSU’s series victory at Texas A&M, White hit .500 (7-for-14) with one double, seven RBI and four runs. His two-out, bases-loaded two-run single in the fourth inning of Game 2 sparked a six-run rally that allowed the Tigers to erase a 4-0 deficit and go on to post a 12-7 win.

White, a product of St. Pete Beach, Fla., is now hitting .419 on the year with a team-high 34 RBI.
