TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State’s Tyler Holt has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Player of the Week, while Miami’s David Gutierrez and NC State’s Jake Buchanan share the ACC Pitcher of the Week honor.
Holt hit .500 in five games last week, which included an ACC road series victory over Duke and a win over No. 7 Florida at home. The junior centerfielder registered a hit and scored a run in all five games including multiple hits in four of the five games. He finished the week posting a 1.000 slugging percentage and an on-base percentage of .600. He was a perfect 5-for-5 in stolen bases and was perfect from the field in 12 fielding opportunities.
The Gainesville, Fla., native started the week scoring two of the three runs in FSU’s 3-2 win over Florida giving the Seminoles their third win over the Gators in four games this season. Against Duke, Holt batted .545 and slugged 1.364 as five of his six hits over the weekend went for extra bases. Holt opened the weekend with his first multi-home run game of the series, slugging two home runs in his first two at-bats vs. Duke on Friday. He finished game one with three RBI and tied a career-high with four runs scored. On Saturday, Holt went 2-for-4 with a double, single and two runs scored, while wrapping up the weekend with a double, a run scored, two stolen bases and two walks as FSU claimed its third road ACC series of the season with an 8-3 victory over the Blue Devils.
Holt and the Seminoles return to the diamond on Tuesday, April 20 at 6:00 p.m. as Florida State faces Charleston Southern for the first of two games against the Buccaneers in Tallahassee.
