Tennessee baseball infielder Christian Moore in the co-SEC Player of the Week after turning in a dominant performance in the Vols’ three-game series at Auburn.

Moore was dominant in the three-game series, hitting seven-of-14 with three home runs, three doubles and 10 RBIs as well as a walk.

The Vols’ star second baseman split the SEC Player of the Week honors with Vanderbilt’s Jayden Davis. In the Commodores’ series victory at LSU, Davis hit seven-of-12 with a home run and three doubles while driving in eight runs.

Moore drove over half the number of runs that Auburn scored (16) over the course of the three-game series. It was a massive week for Tennessee’s offense as the Vols won two out of three games in their three-game road series at Auburn. Tennessee improved to 7-5 in conference play on the year, winning its third straight series after dropping its SEC opening series at Alabama.

While Moore was Tennessee’s best bat at Auburn over the weekend, he was far from the only one that had a massive weekend. Blake Burke, Cal Stark, Kavares Tears and Dean Curley all had huge weekends at the plate. Stark, Tears, Dylan Dreiling and Dalton Bargo all hit multiple home runs over the course of the weekend.

Tennessee’s junior second baseman is in the midst of a strong season. Hitting in the leadoff spot for Tony Vitello’s squad, Moore is batting .352 with 11 doubles, a team-high 13 home runs and 29 runs batted in.

Moore is looking to continue his strong junior campaign this week when Tennessee returns to Lindsey Nelson Stadium. The Vols will face Alabama A&M in a Tuesday night midweek bout before hosting the defending National Champion LSU Tigers for a three-game series next weekend.
