Week 17: May 16-22

By: Ryan Murphy

Nick Jewett, Trinity- Trinity is returning to the D3 World Series for the second consecutive season, in no small part due to the play of the 2014 Dutchmen first baseman. Jewett hit .526 in regional play, driving in five runs on ten hits. His best game came in the Regional Championship game, where he went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and two runs batted in. He was named to the Regional All-Tournament Team upon the conclusion of the weekend, and is joined in the World Series by former Dutchmen Dylan McGee and Taylor Hoesen, as well as future player Michael Maul.

Adam Lee, Lipscomb- It was a historic weekend for Adam Lee, who played in Albany back in 2014. In the final game of a Lipscomb sweep over Stetson, Lee drove in his 62nd run of the season to set a school record. He drove in six runs in the final series of the regular season, and will attempt to guide the Bisons to a second straight NCAA Tournament at home this week.

Ernie Clement, Virginia- Clement was the ACC's regular season hit king, hitting safely 83 times this season. After a 6-for-12 final week, Clement finished the regular season with a .353 batting average and 59 runs scored. The reigning All-College World Series selection drove in three runs and scored another four in Virginia's sweep of instate rival Virginia Tech.

Gavin Wallace, Fairfield- A win in the final weekend from the returning pitcher helped Fairfield to their first MAAC regular season title in over 30 years. Wallace tossed a complete game, allowing just one earned run in seven innings of action. He struck out six hitters with just one walk as the Stags toppled Quinnipiac 6-2. Wallace's seven wins are the best total on the MAAC regular season champs.

Drew Tolson, Baylor- Albany's 2014 Pitcher of the Year earned his team-best sixth win in a 2-1 victory over Texas on Thursday. Tolson was tremendous against the Longhorns, allowing just one run over eight innings. He struck out three hitters and did not allow any free passes. The righthander topped 80 innings on the season on Thursday, and is likely to get a start in the Big 12 Tournament for the Bears.

Austin Goeke, Wagner- Goeke, who pitched for the Dutchmen in 2014, worked a complete game in Wagner's 7-2 win over Central Connecticut on Thursday. The 6-foot-5 righty allowed two runs on six hits during his nine innings on the hill. He struck out four hitters and walked two. During the 2016 regular season, Goeke was Wagner's ace with a 6-4 record and a 3.06 ERA. He led the team in wins, innings pitched, and strikeouts.

Liam Conboy, Susquehanna- Conboy helped Susquehanna to within one game of the World Series with two saves during Regional play. He first recorded the final five outs of Susquehanna's 11-8 win over Frostburg State, striking out three of the seven hitters he faced. His season ended with a save against Cortland, recording the final out in an 8-6 victory. Conboy's season ended with nine saves and a 1.67 ERA.

James Davitt, Bryant- Perfect Game's No. 16 team stretched their winning streak to seven games thanks to a 5-0 week, which included the seventh win from the 2013 Dutchmen pitcher. In Bryant's 19-1 finale win over Mount St. Mary's, Davitt pitched five scoreless innings with five strikeouts. Over the five innings, he allowed only one hit and one walk. The shutout outing dropped Davitt's ERA to 3.76 for the 44-10 Bulldogs.

Chris Suseck, Rutgers- Ending his college career on a high note, the 2013 Dutchmen player hit safely seven times in four games, which included a Senior Day victory over Northwestern. Suseck ended his career at the Big Ten school with a 4-for-4 performance, where he drove in a run and scored two others in a 10-7 win.

Troy Montemayor, Baylor- Montemayor finished the regular season as the Big 12 saves champion, and among the top five closers nationally with 14 saves. He was credited with a save in both of Baylor's wins over Texas, which qualified the Bears for this week's Big 12 Tournament. In both games, Montemayor worked a hitless ninth in wins over the Longhorns. The two saves dropped the 2016 Dutchmen pitcher's already miniscule ERA to 0.78 in 24 outings.

Nathan Harris, Louisiana Tech- The incoming Dutchmen pitcher capped off a sweep of Rice with a victory on Saturday, his fifth of the season. Harris entered in the 11th inning and pitched the final 4.2 frames for the Bulldogs, allowing just one run on three hits. The righty struck out five hitters during his time on the mound as Louisiana Tech won 4-3 in 15 innings. Harris has made 23 apperarances with a 2.81 ERA this season.

Jesse Cooper, Seton Hill- In the final game of his collegiate career, Cooper tossed 2.2 scoreless innings in Seton Hill's regional loss to East Stroudsburg. The senior allowed just one hit with two walks and a strikeout. Cooper finished his final campaign with a 4.55 ERA in 19 appearances, saving four games for the Griffins in a 40-win season.
