SOTO EARNS WAC HITTER OF THE WEEK HONORS
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Sacramento State’s Will Soto has been named the Verizon Western Athletic Conference Baseball Hitter of the Week for May 2-8.
Will Soto earned WAC Hitter of the Week Honors for his efforts at New Mexico State.
Soto, a freshman from Elk Grove, Calif. (Elk Grove HS), hit .706 (12-for-17) with seven runs scored, eight RBI, two doubles and three walks without a strikeout as Sacramento State split a four-game series at New Mexico State over the weekend.
Soto had 10 singles and two doubles in four games, including a Sacramento State season-high five hits on Saturday. He became just the 11th player in school history to tally five hits in a single game, good for No. 2 all-time on the single-game hits list at Sacramento State.
Prior to the New Mexico State State series, Soto was hitting .158 (12-for-76) on the year before exploding against the Aggies and doubling his season hit total. He improved his batting average to .258 (24-for-93) after the weekend.
Soto and the Hornets head to Nevada this weekend for a four-game series with WAC Tournament implications. Sacramento State closes out the year by hosting Louisiana Tech next weekend.
