GREENSBORO — North Carolina senior first baseman Cody Stubbs, a former Tuscola High School standout, has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Player of the Week.
Stubbs paced No. 1 North Carolina to 40 runs in a perfect 4-0 week as he crossed the plate seven times and drove in eight more. Stubbs registered three multi-hit games on the week and hit .500 (7-of-14) with a 1.143 slugging percentage.
Five of his seven hits went for extra bases as he tallied three doubles and a pair of home runs. The current doubles leader in the ACC, Stubbs connected on a two-bagger in each game of UNC’s weekend sweep at Wake Forest.
“Stubby” reached base 11 times and posted a team-high .579 on-base percentage for the week.
After the sweep of the Deacons, Stubbs is sporting a .354 batting average (17-for-48) with eight doubles, two homers, 19 RBI and a .646 slugging percentage.
The Tar Heels are off to their best start since 2000 as Carolina has reeled off 14 straight wins to open the 2013 campaign.
The 14-0 start marks the third time under head coach Mike Fox that the Tar Heels have won their first 14 games, joining the 1999 and 2000 squads.
