Fresno State junior first baseman Kevin Viers was named the Mountain West Conference baseball player of the week after collecting three home runs and nine RBIs as the Bulldogs went 4-0 from March 16-22.
Viers had three RBIs in Fresno State's upset of then No. 8-ranked USC, then homered in each game of a three-game MW sweep of San Jose State over the weekend. He was 9 for 16 (.562) for the week with a 1.188 slugging percentage.
Viers is the third Bulldog to be honored by the MWC this season, joining Brody Russell and Jake Shull.
Fresno State returns to action Wednesday when it hosts No. 21 Cal at 6:35 p.m. at Beiden Field.
