INDIANAPOLIS – Butler senior Kyle Waggoner and Cleveland State senior Anthony Sambula have been named Horizon League Baseball Players of the Week for the period of Feb. 21-27.
Waggoner picked up Batter of the Week accolades for the first time after going 6-for-14 (.412) with seven RBIs in four games over the weekend. He also registered a .412 slugging percentage and .400 on-base percentage for the Bulldogs.
The outfielder, a native of Brownsburg, Ind., helped Butler pick up a 10-9 win on Sunday at USC-Upstate.
Sambula notched Pitcher of the Week honors for the second time in his career after leading CSU to a 4-3 win over UNC-Greensboro to pick up his first win of the season. He allowed just four hits while striking out five on Saturday.
The left-hander, a native of Novelty, Ohio, also assisted in two outs for the Vikings.
