April 25, 2011
FRESNO, Calif. - Fresno State's Michelle Moses has been named the Verizon Western Athletic Conference Hitter of the Week for April 18-24. This is the second hitting award (third overall WAC honor) of the season and fifth of her career for Moses.
Moses, a junior first baseman/pitcher from Paso Robles, Calif., blasted three home runs, including her third career grand slam, hit an opposite field RBI triple, recorded a 1.333 slugging percentage with nine RBI and scored six runs to power Fresno State to a second-straight WAC sweep on the road at Utah State.
She started the series with the grand slam in the Dogs' 5-3 win over the Aggies and drilled two more home runs as Fresno State downed USU 7-1 in the second end of the Friday doubleheader in Logan.
To close the series, Moses' RBI triple started the scoring in a game where Fresno State scored the most runs (16) in 14 years. Moses added an RBI single later in the game to improve to 5-for-12 (.417) in the three-game series.
