We are launching a new weekly feature here on House of Sparky. With so many great teams featuring so many excellent players, Arizona State Sun Devil athletics has a large number of athletes worthy of recognition. Hence, each Sunday, we are going to spotlight the Sun Devil who had the best calendar week from the previous Sunday through Saturday.

Our winner for the week of May 6th-12th comes from the baseball team, which put together a perfect 3-0 record with a Sunday win over Utah before taking a pair over Gonzaga on Friday and Saturday.

After hard fought wins over the first two games, third baseman Michael Benjamin exploded on Saturday, collecting four hits, including a three-run home run in the first inning. That helped pave the way for a career-high five RBI for the sophomore, who also stole a base.

On the week, he hit .500 and played flawless defense over at the hot corner.

Other contenders: Abe Ruiz (baseball), Jordan Clarke (track & field), Justine Lee (women's golf)
