ACC Players of the Week

GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – NC State’s Tarran Senay has been named the ACC Player of the Week, while Miami’s Andrew Suarez claimed Pitcher of the Week honors.

Senay set a career high with six RBIs in game one at Georgia Tech on Friday night, keying the 15th-ranked Wolfpack to a sweep of the 14th-ranked Yellow Jackets for the first time since 1992, and the first time ever in Atlanta. The senior first baseman from South Park, Pa., finished the weekend with nine RBIs and three runs scored. Wolfpack hitters at the top of the order did their part to help Senay’s production; Senay, who hit .411 for the week, came to the plate with the bases empty just twice the entire weekend vs. Tech.

With a crucial series against No. 12 Clemson hanging in the balance, Suarez stepped up to deliver a complete-game shutout, clinching the series in Sunday’s rubber match. The sophomore lefthander scattered just six hits throughout the afternoon, striking out five Clemson batters without issuing a walk. Suarez, a Miami native, finished off an impressive weekend for Hurricane pitchers, as the team allowed its second-fewest runs ever in a three-game series (two). The complete game was Miami’s third of the season and the first of Suarez’ career.
