2018-19 TIGER OF THE WEEK, Week 26 | Mar. 19 | Riley Brandvold, Baseball
SEWANEE, Tenn. - Infielder Riley Brandvold of the Sewanee baseball team has been chosen as the Tiger of the Week after his performance over the seven-game homestand last week.
Riley Brandvold recorded a hit in each game last week, and he will take a seven-game winning streak on the road this week. In seven games, the senior went 12-of-25 with a homer, four RBI, four walks and scored 10 times. He recorded splits of .480/.581/.840 on the week. In 31 plate appearances, Brandvold struck out only once.
Against Covenant, where Sewanee took the win, 12-7, the Jacksonville, Fla. native reached base on all four plate appearances and scored each time he reached.
In the series against Eureka, Brandvold went 6-for-10 at the plate with a triple and a homer. Sewanee swept the midweek series from the Red Devils.
Against Oglethorpe, Brandvold helped the Tigers to the winning run in the bottom of the 10th in game two of the series. After reaching base with a leadoff triple, he later scored on a wild pitch. He finished the series with three hits and two runs scored.
Brandvold and the rest of the Tigers will open a six-game road swing on Wednesday with a midweek, two-game series at Hanover.
