FAYETTEVILLE – For the second consecutive week, a member of the University of Arkansas baseball team has been recognized by CollegeBaseball360 for on-field excellence. Zack Cox was named to the CB360 Primetime Performer Weekly Honor Roll for week six of the 2010 college baseball season, as announced Wednesday.
Last week, Cox was 10-for-18 (.556) at the plate with two home runs, eight RBI, six runs scored, a .667 on-base percentage and a .944 slugging percentage against McNeese State and then-No. 16 Alabama. The Louisville, Ky., native also tallied a double and drew six walks, including a pair of intentional passes. In game one of Arkansas’ series against the Crimson Tide, Cox had a career-high six RBI.
Cox tied a season high with three hits in the midweek finale at McNeese and the series opener against Alabama. During the series with the Crimson Tide, Cox had a hand in 12-four runs, eight RBI-of the Hogs’ 23 runs scored. He also accounted for the game-tying RBI in each of the three games against Alabama as the Razorbacks’ posted come-from-behind-wins in each contest for the sweep.
Entering Wednesday’s midweek finale against Centenary, Cox is second in the Southeastern Conference and leads his team with a .432 batting average. He is also second in the league with 41 hits and 30 runs scored. Riding a 24-game hitting streak, Cox has 12 multi-hit games this season.
Earlier in the week, Cox was named the SEC Player of the Week for his performance. It was the first conference honor for the Razorback sophomore.
After wrapping their midweek series with Centenary, the tenth-ranked Razorbacks will host Kentucky this weekend at Baum Stadium in a return to SEC action. Arkansas is 4-2 through the first two weeks of conference play heading into its series with the Wildcats.
