    ST. LOUIS – Southern Illinois senior first baseman Ryan Casillas has been named the Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Week for his performance in five games this past week.

    Casillas helped the Salukis to three wins this past week, driving in seven runs and recording multiple hits in three of five games. In SIU’s win over Missouri on Tuesday, he set a career high with four hits and matched a career high with three RBIs.  Three days later, Casillas again drove in three more runs in the series opener against Bradley. In that game, he also hit his team-leading fourth home run of the season. Four of his eight hits for the week went for extra bases.

    Casillas is the first Saluki to earn MVC baseball player of the week honors this season.
