STANFORD, Calif. -- Wayne Taylor was named Stanford’s Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for June 2-8.
Taylor forced a third game at the Nashville Super Regional by hitting a walk-off solo home run in the bottom of the ninth to beat Vanderbilt, 5-4, Saturday. The hit, which was featured in Sportscenter’s Top 10 plays, was part of a 2-for-4, two RBI day for Taylor.
The junior’s home run capped a big day, as he was also drafted in the 16th round by the Seattle Mariners prior to the game.
Despite bowing out of the Super Regional with a game three loss, Taylor tripled home a run to get the Cardinal within one run in the third inning Sunday.
