Baton Rouge, La. - Two seems to be the magic number for LSU's baseball team at the moment.
The team retained their number two ranking in the USA Today/ESPN Coaches' poll after a 4-0 week while Jesuit's own Mason Katz earned his second Collegiate Baseball National Player of the Week award.
The senior first baseman was 11-for-18, racking up three home runs and 12 RBIs in the Tigers' last four games.
To call it a hot streak would be an understatement "I've had some good fortune for sure. The ball I hit yesterday, I hit it to the right side of the park with the wind going to right field for sure," Katz said. "I've definitely had a little help but a lot of my home runs have been more than solo shots so there have been a lot of times where teams don't have a place to put me and I'm getting good pitches."
Katz was also awarded his second SEC Player of the Week award Monday. He and LSU are back on the diamond Tuesday night, hosting Alcorn State at 6:30 p.m.
