Corey Ray named ACC Player of the Week

Louisville junior outfielder Corey Ray was named Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Player of the Week on Monday, while North Carolina's Zac Gallen was selected as Pitcher of the Week.

A native of Chicago, Ray hit .667 (6-for-9) with two home runs, seven RBI, nine runs scored and was 6-for-6 on stolen bases in No. 2 Louisville's three-game sweep of SIU Edwardsville during the opening weekend of the 2016 season. The preseason All-American connected for home runs and was 3-for-3 on stolen bases in each of the final two games against the Cougars. He also added an outfield assist on Saturday and made a leaping catch at the wall on Sunday to rob an SIUE hitter of an extra-base hit.

Up next, No. 2 Louisville concludes its season-opening four-game homestand with a visit from Eastern Kentucky on Tuesday at 3 p.m., ET at Jim Patterson Stadium and admission is free. Radio coverage of the game will be available on 1450 WXVW.
