WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — OREGON STATE junior designated hitter Danny Hayes has been named Pac-12 Player of the Week and STANFORD junior right-handed pitcher Mark Appel has been named Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week for May 14-20, Commissioner Larry Scott announced Monday.

Hayes went 8-for-14 (.571) last week, garnering three home runs, 10 RBI, one double and four walks over four games. The junior led off the weekend series at WASHINGTON STATE with two home runs and five RBI as the Beavers won, 10-2, on Friday. Hayes kept the momentum going Saturday, driving in three more runs and adding a homer and a single. His ninth-inning double on Sunday extended his hitting streak to eight games as Oregon State topped the Cougars, 7-5, to wrap up a 3-1 week for OSU.

This is Hayes’ first career Pac-12 Player of the Week honor and the 60th all-time selection for Oregon State.

Appel struck out 13 at UTAH on Friday, retiring 12 in a row at one point and falling one K shy of his career high in strikeouts. The junior threw a complete-game shutout as Stanford beat the Utes, 6-0, marking Appel’s fourth complete game of the season. It was his seventh game with double-digit strikeouts and the second consecutive week he has struck out at least 10. The Houston, Texas native now is 7-0 with a 2.12 ERA in nine Pac-12 starts.

This is Appel’s second career Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week selection and Stanford’s Conference-leading 77th all-time selection. This is Appel’s second Pitcher of the Week award this season, with him first earning the honor on Feb. 28.

Also Nominated (Player): Bobby Brown, ARIZ; Deven Marrero, ASU; Aaron Jones, ORE; Eric Smith, STAN; Trevor Brown, UCLA.

Also Nominated (Pitcher): Mathew Troupe, ARIZ; Jake Barrett, ASU; Alex Keudell, ORE.

I knew it was going to be Danny Hayes. Almost posted a prediction last night. He's been very inconsistent, with flashes of great offensive abilities sandwiched between disappointing and anticlimactic performances. This weekend it all came together in a bunch for him. Also helped having Conforto bat in front of him, I think.

Congrats, Danny. (Who looks a lot like my stepson. Every time I see Danny, I think of Chris.)
