English Named National Player of the Week

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech baseball redshirt junior Tristin English was lauded by Collegiate Baseball for his performance last week, earning National Player of the Week honors for the second time this season, it was announced on Monday.

English helped propel the Yellow Jackets to a 3-1 record on the week by collecting six hits, including a double and three home runs, for 11 RBI and six runs. He finished 6-for-12 in three games against Clemson as the Yellow Jackets won their seventh-straight ACC series – the most consecutive three-game conference series wins in program history.

Recently named to the John Olerud Two-Way Player of the Year midseason watch list, the Williamson, Ga. native also closed out two games for Tech on the mound. He slammed the door on then-No. 4 Georgia with a six-out save in front of 18,000-plus at SunTrust Park before also finishing Game 1 against Clemson in a non-save situation.

English and Georgia Tech baseball have been on a roll, rising to a top-10 national ranking in just four weeks after being an unranked team on April 1. Now the Jackets are ranked as high as No. 8 in D1Baseball’s national poll, as well as No. 10 in Baseball America’s poll – their first top-10 ranking since March 7, 2016.

Georgia Tech remains home at Russ Chandler Stadium this weekend as it hosts a non-conference bout with Western Carolina on May 3-5. First pitches are scheduled for 6 p.m., 4 p.m. and 1 p.m., respectively. Tickets and Family Four Packs remain available for the weekend series HERE.
