BATON ROUGE, La. – LSU junior catcher/first baseman Tyler Moore was named Monday as a National Player of the Week by Collegiate Baseball magazine.

Moore, a Baton Rouge native, enjoyed a remarkable week in leading LSU to four straight victories. He batted .500 (8-for-16) with three doubles, one homer, 13 RBI and six runs scored. He also walked twice, posting a .556 on-base percentage in four games.

In last Tuesday’s win over Northwestern State, Moore produced a career-best eight RBI and launched the first grand slam of his career. In LSU’s three-game SEC sweep at Auburn, Moore batted .417 (5-for-12) with two doubles, five RBI, two runs scored and a .462 on-base percentage. While playing catcher, he also threw out an Auburn runner attempting to steal second base.

Moore raised his cumulative average to .298 this season with nine doubles, three homers, 28 RBI and 25 runs scored.
