LA JOLLA, Calif. - UC San Diego baseball player Garrett Tuck has been named the California Collegiate Athletic Association Player of the Week. The announcement was made Monday by the league.

Tuck played a major part in helping UCSD win its first road series of the season as the Tritons went 3-1 against CCAA opponent San Francisco State on the road.

Overall, he was 9-for-15 from the plate, good for a .600 batting average, and had at least one hit in all four games. Tuck scored three runs, drove in five more and stole three bases, posting a .579 on-base percentage and a .667 slugging percentage.

The sophomore shortstop posted his best performance in game two at Maloney Field. He set a new career-high with four RBI while matching his career-best with four hits. Tuck scored two runs and doubled in the game.

In the series opener, Tuck was 3-for-4 and swiped two bases, which matched another career-high.

His productive week allowed him to take the team lead in batting average (.350) and hits (35). The Arcadia native is just one of two Tritons to start all 28 games this season and he has recorded at least one hit in 22 of those contests.

The series win moved UCSD to 14-14 overall and 12-8 in the CCAA. The Tritons improved their standing in the league, going from a tie for fourth to sole possession of second place.

Tuck is the second Triton to earn a weekly league honor this season as right-handed pitcher Ryan Goodbrand was tabbed the CCAA Pitcher of the Week on Feb. 27.

UCSD is off this week and returns to action at Cal State Stanislaus, playing a four-game league set Mar. 30 - Apr. 1.
