WICHITA, Kan. - Wichita State baseball student-athlete's Tyler Baker and TJ McGreevy have been named the Missouri Valley Conference Player-of-the-Week and Pitcher-of-the-Week for the week of Feb. 25-March 3.

Baker and McGreevy led the Shockers to a 4-1 week with wins over Arkansas-Little Rock, Western Illinois, New Orleans and Iowa.

Baker, a sophomore catcher from Topeka, Kan., went 9-for-15 (.600) with six runs, three doubles, two home runs and four RBI.  He had a 1.200 slugging percentage on the week as well as a perfect fielding percentage in 31 total chances behind the plate. 

In a 9-5 win over Arkansas-Little Rock, he went 2-for-4 with two runs, an RBI, a double and a home run and in an 11-3 win over Western Illinois, he went 1-for-2 with two runs, an RBI, a home run and a walk.  He had a career-high three hits against New Orleans along with a run and a double and he went 1-for-1 with an RBI as a pinch hitter against Central Arkansas.  He finished the weekend going 2-for-4 with a run, an RBI and a double against Iowa.  He had a hit in all five games last week and increased his career-best hitting streak to eight games.

McGreevy, a senior pitcher from Topeka, Kan., made two relief appearances for the Shockers last week and picked up a win and a save.  He went 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a save in 6.1 innings with no walks and seven strikeouts.  Against Arkansas-Little Rock, he came into the game in the bottom of the seventh inning with runners on first and second with two outs and the Shockers winning by one run. He retired seven of the eight batters he faced and struck out three of them to earn his first save of the season.  Against Iowa, he pitched four shutout innings of relief and allowed just two hits with no walks and four strikeouts to earn his first win of the season.

The Shockers are next in action on Tue., March 5 when they host Oral Roberts at 3 p.m. at Eck Stadium.
