LEBANON, Tenn.-- Cumberland's first baseman Nolan Machibroda was named the Mid-South Conference Baseball Player of the Week, the league office released on Monday.
The senior from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan had a huge week at the plate, hitting .643 with three home runs and 12 RBIs across four games. He also scored nine runs in the three Phoenix wins.
In the mid-week game against IU-Southeast, he picked up two singles and drove in three runs. He posted three hits with a two-run homer, two walks, and three runs scored in the first of a three-game series at Tennessee Southern. He collected three hits with a two-run bomb in game two and he added a two-run blast, a single, and three runs scored in the series finale.
