FIRST BASEMAN ISAAC FRIEDEL NAMED NEC ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
UMBC freshman first baseman Isaac Friedel came up big in UMBC's three-game sweep of Wagner over the weekend, lacing seven hits in ten at-bats while driving in four runs. On the week, the Wall, NJ native batted .571 (8-14) with two doubles, a triple, three runs scored and five RBI. Friedel went 3-3 with a pair of doubles and an RBI in a 6-5 win over the Seahawks on Saturday. In the first game of Sunday's twinbill, Friedel knocked in a pair of runs with his first career triple as the Retrievers went on to post a 6-3 victory. In the nightcap, he went 3-4 with a double and an RBI as UMBC completed the sweep with a 4-3 triumph. Friedel, who had struggled at the plate early in the season, raised his average from .125 to .226 with his big week and is now tied for second on the club with eight RBI.
