RICHMOND, Va. --- Graduate student Sam Cochrane has been named the Colonial Athletic Association Baseball Player of the Week after leading the College of Charleston to a 3-1 week against No. 2 Texas and East Carolina announced league officials Monday.

Cochrane batted .643 (9-14) with two doubles, a triple, a home run and four RBI to lead the Cougars to a midweek win over No. 2 Texas and a series victory against ECU. The Ocala, Fla. native posted four straight multi-hit games while both scoring and driving in at least one run in each contest.

He delivered a key hit with an RBI triple in the 8-4 win over second-ranked Texas on Tuesday and capped the week with two doubles – both in the third inning – and an RBI in Sunday’s series-clinching win over ECU.


The Cougars will hit the road on Tuesday traveling to Statesboro, Ga. to take on Georgia Southern in midweek action. First pitch is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. at J.I. Clements Stadium.
