Former Saint Barrios is Big 12 Player of the Week
04/02/2013

After batting .400 with a triple and 5 two out RBI's on
the week for the Texas Tech Red Raiders, former Seward County Saint and Liberal BJ
shortstop Jake Barrios has been named the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week as
announced by the league office Monday. 

                Barrios finished the week with back to back multi-hit
games against TCU over the weekend. He went 2 for 4 with 2 RBI's in the
middle game of the series and then went 2 for 5 with 3 RBI's in Tech's
8-7 win over the Horned Frogs on Sunday. He sparked the Red Raiders with
a three run triple off the right field wall with two outs in the 1st
inning of Sunday's win. He hit safely in every game last week while also
going 1 for 3 with 2 walks in the Red Raiders midweek game at New Mexico
State on Monday, and went 1 for 3 with a sacrifice bunt against TCU in
the series opener Friday. He finished the week with a .471 on-base
percentage and .533 slugging percentage.

                Barrios is currently third on the team with a .271
batting average and leads the squad with 3 triples and 22 RBI's for the
17-13 Red Raiders.  Defensively Barrios has been just as good for first
year Head Coach Tim Tadlock and the Raiders as the shortstop turned 3rd
baseman has just 4 errors in 157 chances on the season. 

                As a freshman Barrios led the Saints to the JUCO World
Series, earning All-Tournament Team honors in Grand Junction.  As a
sophomore last season, he helped the Saints to the #1 seed for the
Region VI Tournament, hitting .354 with 14 doubles and 49 RBI's. 

                Barrios is the second former Saint to earn the honor for
the Red Raiders after Kelby Tomlinson grabbed the award in 2011 for
Tech.
 

Barrios will play for the Liberal BJ's this summer which will mark

his third summer with the team.
