Center Valley, Pa. - Another honor came in for Army senior shortstop Clint Moore on Tuesday, as he was named the ECAC Player of the Week after earning the award from the Patriot League earlier in the afternoon.
With first place in the Patriot League at stake, Moore took over Monday's doubleheader with Lafayette by smashing four home runs with 11 RBIs to lead the Black Knights to a sweep. He hit a grand slam in the sixth inning of the opener as Army went on to a 9-0 win, and tied a Patriot League record with three home runs in the nightcap to lead the Black Knights to a 12-2 triumph. He became just the third player in League history to belt three home runs in a game, joining Army's Walker Gorham (2005) and Lafayette's A.J. Miller (2010). He hit for the home run cycle on the afternoon with a three-run, two-run and solo shot in the second game. Moore also had a home run with five RBIs on Wednesday against Yale, and finished the week with five home runs and 16 RBIs while batting .391 (9-for-23) with seven runs scored.
Already the Patriot League career RBI leader, Moore's total of 176 is now 19 higher than any other player has recorded in League annals. He moved to second place in League history with 34 career home runs. Moore ties a Patriot League
career record with his fourth Player of the Week award, and his second this year.
Moore is the first Patriot Leaguer honored by the ECAC this season, with the organization giving out its final awards of the 2011 campaign on Tuesday.
The Patriot League schedule enters the final weekend with all four League Tournament berths still up for grabs. The four-game series include Army at Bucknell, Lafayette at Navy and Lehigh at Holy Cross, with more information on Tournament scenarios available in the Patriot League Baseball Release (4.26.11)
