Matt Lloyd is good at baseball, wins National Player of the Week

After the Hoosiers swept Northwestern, Lloyd was honored as National and Big Ten Player of the Week

The Indiana baseball team (13-8-1) traveled to Evanston this weekend and came away with a sweep of Northwestern. The Hoosiers, who are now winners of 9 out of their last 10 games, were led by Matt Lloyd. The sophomore earned two honors - National Player of the Week and Big Ten Player of the Week - after his great play against the Wildcats this weekend.

Lloyd, who hails from Canada, was scorching from the plate and from the mound in the 3-day series against the Wildcats, picking up 2 saves and filling up the stat book in all categories from the plate. Overall, he finished with 9 hits, 4 homers, and 10 RBI on the weekend to go along with his stellar relief pitching.

Lloyd picked up National and Big Ten Player of the Week honors just a week after Alex Krupa had received the Big Ten Player of the Week honor for the Hoosiers. On the season, Lloyd is batting .327, has 5 home runs, and 17 RBI. Lloyd has also pitched in 9.2 innings this season and has only given up 3 run earned runs.

The Hoosiers (13-8-1) will take on Evansville (8-15) at Bart Kaufman Field tomorrow starting at 6:05 p.m.
