SAN FRANCISCO — The Oregon State baseball team swept the Pac-12’s weekly honors for the first time since 2017 when the conference announced the awards Monday afternoon. 

Trevor Larnach was named Pac-12 player of the week while Luke Heimlich won pitcher of the week. 

The duo helped the Beavers to a two-game sweep in a shortened series at Missouri State. OSU, which will host Oregon for the Civil War conference series this week, outscored the Bears 27-8 to push their overall record to 26-6.

Larnach hit a pair of home runs in the first game Friday, both coming with a runner on base. The junior finished the weekend with four hits and five RBIs — collecting three hits in the first game and one hit and one RBI in game two.

Larnach is now third in the Pac-12 with 10 home runs and leads the league with 42 RBIs. He is seventh nationally with 1.31 RBIs per game.

Heimlich, meanwhile, tossed six innings in Friday's opener and struck out 10 batters while allowing seven hits and three runs. He won his eighth game of the season and is one of four players tied for the national lead.

The senior left-hander now has 28 career wins, tying him with Mike Gorman (1979-82), John Sipple (1984-86), Jeff Post (1989-92) and Dallas Buck (2004-06) for the third-most in OSU history. Heimlich has a Pac-12-best 67 strikeouts on the year and now stands at 293 for his career, which is six shy of tying Jonah Nickerson (2004-06) for most in Oregon State history.

Both Larnach and Heimlich have been honored for the second time this season. Larnach has been recognized twice in his career and is one of 13 players in school history with at least two. Heimlich has been honored six times, tying with Scott Christman for second-most at Oregon State.

The Beavers last swept the Pac-12’s weekly awards in March of 2017 when KJ Harrison was named player of the week and Bryce Fehmel pitcher of the week.
