Crumlich honored as a Big West Player of the Week

Junior shortstop D.J. Crumlich was named a Big West Conference Player of the Week after batting .500 last week, when UC Irvine went 4-0.

Crumlich, who has reached safely in all 13 games for the Anteaters, singled in a run in UCI's win over No. 19 Connecticut for the team's first victory against a ranked team this season.

He then went four for five with a double and two runs batted in in the opener against Sacramento State.

Saturday he drew two walks and scored once as the Anteaters edged the Hornets to hand Mike Gillespie his 900th career win.

In the series finale, Crumlich capped the series with a two for three performance, including a two-run single that drove in the team's eighth and nine runs in a 9-7 win.

Crumlich is currently hitting .412 and is second on the team with 21 hits. He is third with 15 RBIs and tops the team with 24 runs scored.

It is the first weekly award for Crumlich, who shares the honor with Cal State Northridge's Drew Muren.
