Stanford's Daschbach earns Pac-12 Player of Week honors
Palo Alto Online
Stanford junior first baseman Andrew Daschbach, the former Sacred Heart Prep standout, earned Pac-12 Baseball Player of the Week honors it was announced Monday. He became the first Stanford player to hit four home runs in a game.
Daschbach became the first Stanford player to hit four home runs in a game went he did so against Cal Poly in a 7-1 victory last Tuesday.
He also had three hits, including a pair of triples, and scored twice in Stanford's 8-5 win over Oregon Staten Friday.
Daschbach finished three games last week with 23 total bases, six RBI and six runs to become Stanford's third Pac-12 Player of the Week in five weeks.
Daschbach became the first player in the NCAA to hit four home runs in a game this season and the eighth to do so since 2013. He is the second-ever Pac-12 player to hit four homers in a game, joining UCLA's Bill Scott (vs. Washington on March 30, 1999).
Daschbach's 16 total bases against Cal Poly are the most of any player in the NCAA this season and the most in the Pac-12 by five.
It was the first time a Stanford player hit at least three home runs in a game since June 15, 2000, when Edmund Muth hit three in a College World Series matchup against Louisiana-Lafayette.
Daschbach's four homers tie for the third-most in a single game in NCAA history: Marshall McDougall hit six for Florida State on May 9, 1999 and Henry Rochelle hit five for Campbell on March 30, 1985.
