NEW LONDON, Conn. – For the second straight week, Mitchell College senior Eric Marriott was selected to the D3baseball.com Team of the Week on Monday night.
Every Monday during the season, the popular web site recognizes the top performers from across the nation at each position from the previous week. Marriott, an outfielder, becomes the first Mitchell player to receive the honor twice in the same season.
Marriott batted .692 with four RBI and nine runs scored as the Mariners posted a 4-0 record last week. In Mitchell's first New England Collegiate Conference series of the season against Newbury he went 7-for-8 with a double, two RBI, six runs scored and three stolen bases. Earlier in the week he reached base safely in all five plate appearances in the opener against Albertus Magnus and finished with two hits, two RBI and three runs scored in the doubleheader. He slugged .923 for the week and had an on-base percentage of .765.
Marriott, who was also tabbed NECC Player of the Week on Monday, has started all 18 games this season and is batting .417 with four doubles, a triple and four home runs. He leads the team in runs (28), walks (16) and steals (10) and ranks third in RBI (17).
Mitchell (13-5 overall) is riding a nine-game winning streak and will next play at UMass Boston on Wednesday, April 3 at 7:15 p.m.
