Baseball's Matt Smith was named the Sacramento State Student-Athlete of the Week following his incredible offensive performance in four games for the Hornets, including a three-game sweep of conference opponent CSU Bakersfield.

Smith wrapped the four-game week hitting .643 (9-for-14) with a .737 on-base percentage and a 1.286 slugging percentage (2.032 OPS). Smith drove in eight runs and scored seven while collecting a double, triple, and two home runs. He also stole a base. 

The junior outfielder's biggest game came on Saturday as he went 3-for-3 with a double, a triple, and a two-run home run. He was also hit by a pitch twice.

Smith has hit safely in seven straight games, matching his longest hitting streak of the season. During that time he is hitting .552 with 11 runs scored and 11 RBIs. Smith leads the Hornets with a .289 batting average on the season. 

The Hornets are currently 21-10 overall and 7-2 in the WAC. They play again Tuesday, April 9, on the road at Santa Clara.
