KLAMATH FALLS -- Josh Kallstrom of Oregon Tech has been named the NAIA Baseball National Player of the Week, the national office announced Tuesday. Kallstrom was selected for his performance from April 2 – 8 and was picked out of a pool of conference award winners.

Kallstrom knocked a walk-off grand slam against College of Idaho in the bottom of the 12th inning to extend the Owl's winning streak to seven games. His monster week included the following numbers: 

-10 runs scored, 8 runs driven in
-Went 11-for-17 (.647 batting average)
- Three doubles, and two home runs

His performance over that monster week is hardly an abberation, though. He has been dominating NAIA West play all season long. He leads the NAIA West in a number of statistical categories this season, including: batting average (.409), slugging percentage (.720), hits (67), doubles (19), home runs (10), total bases (118), and runs batted in (42).

He and the Owls look to extend the winning streak against defending national champion, Lewis-Clark State, who comes into town for a doubleheader on Sunday.
