COLUMBIA — Missouri senior Aaron Senne has been named the Big 12 Conference Baseball Player of the Week, the second time this season Senne has won the award.
In the Tigers' five games last week, Senne hit .609 (14-for-23), including a series mark of .583 at Oklahoma. He had two home runs, three doubles and seven RBIs in the three games against the Sooners.
Senne, who is currently on a 16-game hitting streak, was 3-for-4 in the Tigers' midweek games against SIU-Edwardsville and Illinois. In the final game of the Oklahoma series, he hit a solo home run in the eighth inning to break an 11-11 tie and carry Missouri to the 12-11 victory.
Senne is hitting .460 thus far this season, which leads the Big 12. His 10 home runs and 15 doubles rank second in the conference, while his 38 RBI are fourth best.
Senne was also named the Big 12 Player of the Week on March 1 after he hit .462 at the Auburn Classic.
