After hitting over .500 in the Tigers' last five games, Auburn second baseman Jordan Ebert was named SEC freshman of the week on Monday.
Ebert hit .579/.636/.842 in single games against Jacksonville State, Samford and a three-game series at Florida. He was 11-for-19 with four doubles, a home run, five runs and four RBIs. His home run was a solo shot with two outs in the ninth inning on Friday night against Florida, giving the Tigers an insurance run in their 7-4 win. Over the course of the week, he raised his batting average from .263 to .302.
The 19-year-old had a nice week in the field, too, compiling 15 put-outs and 18 assists without an error. Auburn went 4-1, thanks in large part to Ebert's solid play.
It's the second week in a row an Auburn player has earned an SEC honor. Third baseman Damek Tomscha was named player of the week last Monday.
