COLLEGE STATION, TX -- Texas A&M baseball senior Matt Juengel was selected as Big 12 Player of the Week on Monday during the final set of weekly honors handed out by the conference office.
The Houston native’s biggest contributions came during the Oklahoma State series when he went 7-for-19 (.467) in three games against Cowboy pitching with a multi-hit game in each contest. During the series he also notched a team-leading six RBI.
During Friday night’s come-from-behind effort, Juengel lifted the Aggies to a victory with a three-run home run in the top of the 13th inning.
Starting all four games of the week at third base, Juengel also notched a multi-RBI game on Saturday by driving in a team-best three in an 8-7 win.
Juengel becomes the first Aggie to earn Big 12 Player of the Week since Adam Smith was recognized in May of 2010.
Texas A&M baseball returns to action this week as it takes part in the Phillips 66 Big 12 Championship at Oklahoma City’s Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. The second-seeded Aggies will open their run at the tournament by facing No. 7 seed Kansas at 4 p.m. on Wednesday.
