Monday, February 25, 2008

ELMHURST, Ill. – After three Centenary victories over Northern Iowa during the weekend, Gents senior third baseman Teddy Saenz has earned The Summit Leagues Hitter of the Week award.


Over the weekend, Saenz went 6-for-12 in the four-game series with a triple, a home run, four runs scored and four RBIs. Dating back to last season, the San Jose, Calif., native has hit safely in seven straight games.


In game one of the doubleheader on Saturday, his two hits went for a triple and a home run. Saenz also knocked in two runs and was able to score twice himself in Saturday’s first game. He was also sound defensively during the four games, committing just one error in 13 chances.


Centenary will be back in action on Wednesday when it plays Texas College in a doubleheader starting at 4 p.m.
