By: Ryan Murphy

Nick Jewett of the SCAC Champion Trinity University Tigers.

Brandon Trinkwon, Los Angeles Dodgers organization- Trinkwon played for the Dutchmen in 2011, and now plays for the Tulsa Drillers, the double-A affiliate of the Dodgers. Trinkwon hit safely in five of Tulsa's six games this week, including three multi-hit games. His best game came on Saturday, going 3-for-4 with a run batted in during a 6-4 loss to NW Arkansas. Trinkwon has hit .394 in his last ten games, and is hitting .283 with seven RBIs on the season.

Nick Jewett, Trinity- A first baseman on the 2014 Albany roster, Jewett led the No. 1 Tigers to the SCAC Tournament championship with three wins. Jewett went 7-for-11 over the three games, driving in four runs. He was a major key in Sunday's championship game, driving in three runs with a 2-for-2 effort. He hit a two-run home run in the third inning of the 8-3 win, and also drove in a run on a sacrifice fly. He was named to the Conference All-Tournament Team following the tournament, and shared the championship with fellow former Dutchmen Dylan McGee (2014) and Taylor Hoesen (2015).

Adam Lee, Lipscomb- Lipscomb's offense exploded this weekend, as the Bisons put up 45 runs in a three game series against NJIT. 2014 Dutchmen star Adam Lee was a major part of that offense, recording a .615 batting average for the weekend. Lee drove in six runs, and recorded at least one RBI in every game. The infielder currently leads the Atlantic Sun Conference in RBIs with 51, and is hitting .327 for the Bisons, who sit in the top half of the league.

Jon Reid, Azusa Pacific- The lefty from last season's team picked up his fourth win on Friday in dominant fashion, working into the ninth inning in a 5-1 victory. Reid came within two outs of a complete game, allowing just one run on five hits. He struck out eight hitters and did not surrender a walk. Reid has been Azusa's top starter in 2016, pitching 82 innings with a 3.18 ERA.

Joel Hake, Youngstown State- Hake made two appearances this week for the Penguins, and earned his first career win on Wednesday against Bowling Green. He entered the game in the fourth inning, working four frames with just one hit allowed. Hake also pitched a scoreless inning on Sunday in a loss to Canisius. The incominf Dutchmen pitcher has come on strong for Youngstown State, allowing just one earned run in his last 11.2 innings of work.

Tyler Orris, Millersville- Millersville will enter conference tournament action as Perfect Game's No. 1 team, thanks in no small part to the 2013 infielder. Orris extended his on-base streak to 41 games for the 43-4 Marauders, and scored seven runs to claim the team lead with 52. The infielder posted a 3-for-4 game on Saturday, driving in two runs and scoring another two in a 16-3 win over Kutztown.

Justin Childers, Ohio Dominican- Despite a 2-4 week, Childers continued to produce for the Panthers, hitting .350 over the week's six games. He had a huge game on Saturday in a losing effort, blasting two home runs and driving in five runs. The homers gave him a team-best eight for the season. Childers has been one of Ohio Dominican's best players this season, hitting .346 with 38 RBIs and 45 runs scored.

Ernie Clement, Virginia- The 2014 Dutchmen star and the Cavaliers got a huge ACC sweep this weekend over Pittsburgh, and ran their winning streak to five games. In the week's four wins, Clement hit .368 and scored his 50th run of the season, a team-best. Clement leads the Cavaliers, who are a likely NCAA Tournament selection, in runs scored, hits, and stolen bases. He is also one of four players to start every game for the defending national champs.

Mychael Goudreau, Azusa Pacific- Goudreau, who will play for the Dutchmen this summer, helped extend Azusa Pacific's winning streak to eight games with a four game sweep of Academy of Art. During the sweep, the leadoff hitting shortstop hit .412 with six runs scored. He scored in every game, and recorded a three-hit game on Saturday. The successful week rose Goudreau's average to .333 over 22 games, 21 of which have been starts.

Mike Reitcheck, Penn- In his final start of the season, Reitcheck provided the Quakers with their final win of the campaign in convincing fashion. The lefty tossed a seven inning complete game against Columbia, and did not allow a run until the final frame of the contest. The win was Reitcheck's second of the season, and gave Penn a .500 record in Ivy League play. The 2015 Albany pitcher finished the year with a 3.96 ERA.

Jack Wietlispach, Robert Morris- The two-time Dutchmen player engineered a 4-1 week for the Eagles, including a Senior Day sweep of IU-South Bend. In one of the victories over South Bend, Wietlispach drove in four runs with a two-run double and a two-run single. The fan favorite has helped Robert Morris to a winning record by hitting .336 with 27 runs batted in, and has contributed defensively by catching ten runners stealing.

Danny Hrbek, Radford- Hrbek suited up for the Dutchmen as a utility player in 2014, and his Highlanders earned a conference series win due in part to his output. He started his week by going 3-for-5 in a win over ETSU, and ended the series with two RBIs on a single that gave Radford the lead in a win over Gardner-Webb. Hrbek holds the team leads in batting average, hits, and runs batted in.
