Raph Rhymes named SEC Player of the Week

Baton Rouge, LA -

Raph Rhymes was named SEC Player of the Week on Monday.

The senior outfielder led the Tigers to three wins in four games last week, including an SEC series victory against Ole Miss.

Rhymes batted .455 (5-for-11) in four games with one double, two home runs and six RBI.

His two-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning Friday erased a 4-3 Ole Miss lead and lifted the Tigers to a 5-4 victory that clinched the series and allowed LSU to set single-season school records for regular-season wins (48) and SEC wins (23).

Rhymes also had an exciting inside-the-park home run in the Tigers 7-1 victory over the Rebels on Thursday night, only the third inside-the-park dinger in the five-season history of the New Alex Box Stadium.
