Bobby Zmarzlak was named the Big Ten Player of the Week, the conference announced on Tuesday.

Zmarzlak has been on a tear his last few games. Before Tuesday’s game against Towson, Zmarzlak posted a batting average of .533 in four games last week, all four of which Maryland won.

Zmarzlak hit two home runs in those four games, including a three-run walk-off shot on Friday night.

Zmarzlak earned the honor on Tuesday afternoon and preceded to have another monster performance on Tuesday night. The Stamford, Connecticut native hit a go ahead homer in extra innings to give Maryland a 4-3 victory over Towson and extend its winning streak to five.

Maryland will need that production this weekend as they head to Illinois in a battle amongst two of the top teams in the conference.
