Virginia Tech's Bauder has 4 homers and 14 RBI – in one game

CHICAGO (NBCWA) – The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) released its National Hitter and Pitcher of the Week awards for the period ending April 21st.


Virginia Tech junior outfielder Brad Bauder was named the National Hitter of the Week, while Wichita State junior righthander John Tetuan took the Pitcher of the Week honors. The NCBWA Board reviews candidates from each Division I Conference each week and names winners each Tuesday throughout the season.

Bauder exploded during Virginia Tech's weekend series at Georgetown. The junior collected two hits and drove in two runs during a 10-5 win against the Hoyas, then went 8-for-8 at the plate with four home runs, two singles, a double and a triple in a record-breaking 35-4 victory. He drove in 14 runs and scored seven, capping his performance with a grand slam home run in the eighth inning. The Tech center fielder set school single-game marks for hits, RBI and total bases (23) and tied records for runs scored and home runs. His totals for runs, RBI and total bases were BIG EAST Conference records. Bauder also hit for the cycle during his record-breaking outing.

At Creighton on April 19, Tetuan threw a one-hit shutout and struck out a career-high 13 Bluejays in a 1-0 win. Tetuan, who went nine innings, walked just one batter in improving to 5-0 on the season. It was the first one-hitter thrown by a Shocker pitcher in a nine-inning game since Mike Brandley did it at Southern Illinois in 1993.

Founded in 1962, the NCBWA is dedicated to the advancement of college baseball. Membership is open to writers, broadcasters and publicists of the sport. For more information about the NCBWA, visit the association's official Web site,
