Third baseman Quentin Selma has been named the Pac-12 Player of the Week for his illustrious performance against St. John’s and UC Santa Barbara. The junior logged five RBI against the Gauchos, six more versus the Johnnies and is slashing a head-turning .407/.593/.515. Selma drew five walks over the weekend and went 5 for 9 at the dish.
The Bears are currently 2-5 on the season, but Selma has been integral to offensive production and putting runs on the board in every game in 2020. Against the Johnnies, a nine pitch at bat resulted in a go-ahead grand slam courtesy of Selma to bring the Bears to an 11-7 victory over St. John’s, marking their only win of the series. Although he only earned one run himself, the junior accounted for 11 RBI over the St. John’s series and UC Santa Barbara game.
Selma was also named to the Bobby Bragan Collegiate Slugger Award watch list for the threat he poses at the plate. As the only Bear to ever have visited the 2019 College Home Run Derby, Selma continues to prove his offensive indispensability for Cal baseball this season.
