College Player of the Week: Sam Worthen
Workhorse Sam Worthen was back at it out of the bullpen for D'Youville University this past week.
Known for his ability to eat innings during his time with the Terriers, Worthen has continued to do the same throughout his college career.
He made his first appearance of the week on Monday, working two scoreless innings with a strikeout in a 4-3 loss to Lincoln University.
Then, in their series opener against Mercy College, Worthen picked up the win by throwing 1.1 innings and scattering two hits in an 11-8 victory.
Not done there, he earned his fourth save with a scoreless inning of work in a 5-2 Game 2 win.
Austin Gomm had a hit in Parkland College's only game of the week, a 9-1 win over the Illinois Wesleyan University JV's.
Lefty Connor O'Halloran was brilliant for the University of Michigan in their series opener against Nebraska. The former Junior National Team standout threw nine innings and allowed one run on six hits. He walked two and struck out four, but it wasn't enough as the Huskers plated two in the top of the 10th for a 3-1 win.
Right-hander Ben Abram struck out nine but took the loss as Texas Christian University downed No. 11 Oklahoma State 7-3. Abram surrendered eight hits and walked two over five innings.
Hendrix College took on Rhodes in a three-game series and Zach Marriott chipped in four hits, a walk, four RBI and was hit by a pitch. He went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs in a 17-9 Game 2 loss.
AJ Karosas homered in the University of Charleston's 8-2 Game 4 win over Glenville State. He finished the series with two hits, a walk and three RBI.
Owen MacNeil appeared in the University of Charleston's Game 4 win, throwing 2.2 innings and allowing two runs on three hits with a walk and two strikeouts.
In four games for the Niagara Purple Eagles, catcher Matt Ward amassed four hits, walked three times, drove in three and was hit by a pitch.
Southpaw Campbell Ellis secured his second save of the season for the Virginia Commonwealth University Rams with two scoreless innings of relief in a 6-4 win over Virginia Military Institute. The junior allowed a hit, walked one and struck out four. He earned his fourth win later in the week with five innings of work in an 11-7 Game 3 victory over Saint Joseph's.
