Boston, Mass.—UMBC baseball freshman Christian Torres (Miami, Fla./Miami Senior) was named America East Rookie of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday. This is the second straight week Torres has earned the award, as he helped UMBC to a pair of win against UMass Lowell this past weekend.
The Miami native went 6-12 from the plate for a .500 average in three games against the River Hawks. He ripped two doubles, driving in three runs and scoring one himself.
Over the past two weeks, Torres is batting .444 with 12 hits and five RBI and five runs scored. He is currently riding a six game hit streak, just two games short of his season best of eight.
The Retrievers will travel to Georgetown for a mid-week matchup with the Hoyas on Wednesday, April 26 at 7 p.m.
