Keizor Collects #SummitBSB Weekly Honor

Keizor Collects #SummitBSB Weekly Honor

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Oral Roberts catcher Riley Keizor earned his first Summit League Player of the Week honor, while freshman hurler Nic McCay from South Dakota State notched his second Pitcher of the Week accolade of his rookie season after leading their respective teams to series win last week.

 

Keizor drove in 11 runs during the sweep of Purdue Fort Wayne and went 7-for-13 at the plate against the Mastodons. In the opener, Keizor went 3-for-3 for seven RBI and a home run in the first three innings to jumpstart the Golden Eagles. He had three more hits and a pair of RBI in game two and capped the series with two RBI in the finale.

 

McCay held Omaha, the league's top hitting club, to just a single through seven innings of scoreless work while equaling his career high with 11 strikeouts. The Jackrabbits would win the game and go on to take the series from the first-place Mavericks.  The righthander struck out the side in the second and sixth innings and is now tied for third in the league in punchouts with 71.
