Stanford's Hoffpauir's hot bat earns him Pac-12 weekly honor

 

Stanford's Zach Hoffpauir homered three times and had three multi-hit games to earn the Pac-12 Conference's Player of the Week honors.

Hoffpauir, who recently returned from injury, slugged three homers in the series victory at California and hit at a .421 clip over five games. He drove in six of his 10 weekly RBI on Saturday in a wild 11-10 victory for the Bears.


The two-sport, Hoffpauir homered in the eighth and ninth innings to help tie the game at 10-10.

He also drove in three as part of a three-hit afternoon on Sunday, which included a double and a homer. In 10 games Hoffpauir is hitting .263, with all of his homers and RBI coming this past weekend.

Brennan Scarlett, who has been admitted to Stanford's graduate program for management science and engineering, will join the Cardinal football program while pursuing a master's degree.

Scarlett will be the program's first graduate transfer.

The defensive lineman played 18 games in four seasons at Cal, totaling 54 tackles (9.0 tackles for loss) and 4.5 sacks.

Scarlett was a 2013 candidate for the Ted Hendricks Award, given annually to the nation's top defensive end, and earned Pac-12 Conference All-Academic honors in 2012.

A native of Portland, Ore., Scarlett was selected for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl following his 2010 senior season at Central Catholic High School.

Scarlett's brother, Cameron, will be a freshman on Stanford's squad next season.
