BTD Player of the Week: Lonnie Lechelt

Sometimes it's about quality over quantity, and that's the reason Lonnie Lechelt is this week's BTD player of the week.

Against Arizona State on Friday, Lonnie came into the game late as a defensive replacement. In his only at-bat, he hit a triple down the  left field line to drive in two runs and set the Beavers up for a ninth inning comeback against then No. 2 Arizona State.

He went 1-for-4 with a 3-run homer on Saturday in Oregon State's rout of the Sun Devils, and was back at it again Sunday with a 3-for-5 performance. He doubled in that game, giving him a double, triple, and homer in the series.

Lonnie is hitting .326 on the year with two home runs and is 14  for 44 at the plate.

He hasn't been getting as much playing time at third base as last year due to Drew George's performances at the plate. But with second base still somewhat up in the air, it looks like Lonnie will get a chance to play there when his bat is hot.
