Hot-hitting Hunter Morris picked up another conference player of the week award.

Birmingham, Ala.--Auburn junior first baseman Hunter Morris has been named the Southeastern Conference Baseball Player of the Week after leading the Tigers to two victories over Kentucky and one over Troy.

On Sunday his walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth inning was the game-winner in Auburn’s 6-5 victory over Kentucky to improve his team’s SEC record to 10-8 and give the Tigers a 2-1 series victory.

Morris finished the week 8-13 at the plate as he hit two home runs, two triples, two doubles and two singles. That computes to a 1.538 slugging percentage.
