Rocha Big 12 baseball pitcher of the week
By Jake Trotter
I saw Michael Rocha pitch a couple of times in high school. He seemed like a good kid when I spoke with him and he has a lot of ability, too. If he can pitch half as well as he did against Tennessee, OU could do some damage in the Big 12 with its rotation of Stephen Porlier as the ace and Rocha as the No. 2 or 3 starter.

IRVING, Texas—Rebel Ridling (Oklahoma State) has been named
Phillips 66 Big 12 Baseball Player of the Week while Michael Rocha (Oklahoma) has earned the Pitcher of the Week accolade for games of Feb. 25 – March 2 in voting by a panel of media covering the conference. It is the second career weekly award for Ridling and the first for Rocha.
PLAYER OF THE WEEK Rebel Ridling,Oklahoma State, 1B, Sr., 6-3, 230, Sentinel, Okla./Midland JC Ridling led the Cowboys to a 3-1 record against
South Florida and Northwestern last week. He posted a .500 batting average (10-for-20) in
Tampa while pacing OSU with three home runs and 11 RBI. The senior first baseman also scored six runs and had a pair of doubles with a 1.050 slugging percentage. On Saturday, Ridling hit two home runs and tallied five RBI against Northwestern. His two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning sent the game into extra innings. In the game one victory over the Wildcats on Friday, Ridling went 3-for-4 with two RBI.
