Javelina Duo Earns LSC Honors

KINGSVILLE, Texas - Texas A&M-Kingsville senior baseball players Derek Walls and Cody Williams received honors from the Lone Star Conference office on Monday afternoon. Walls was named the LSC co-Hitter of the Week and Williams the LSC co-Pitcher of the Week.

Walls became the third Javelina to be named co-Hitter of the Week this season joining Taylor Taska and Julian Duran. Walls, who shared the honor with Blake Cooper of Eastern New Mexico, led the Javelinas with a .450 average. The senior was nine of 20 with four walks, seven runs scored and two runs driven in. He scored twice in the win over St. Mary's and twice in the finale with Eastern New Mexico. Walls drove in a run in each of the final two games of the series.

Williams joins Denver Diefenbach - a 2-time honoree in 2014 - as Javelinas to be recognized on the mound. Making his first start of the season on Tuesday at St. Mary's, he showed little difficulty in making the transition back to a starting role. Williams, who has nine relief appearances on the season, tossed five scoreless innings in the midweek game to earn the victory of the region's top team. He scattered four hits and walked one, while striking out three. He made two relief appearances at Eastern New Mexico going 1-1.

The Javelinas host St. Edward's on Tuesday at 6 p.m. All tickets will be $1 as part of Javelina Dollar Days sponsored by flower girls.
