LakePoint, Ga. - After an offensive explosion, FGCU's Kohl Gilmore takes home this week's ASUN Baseball Player of the Week. Stetson's Mitchell Senger earns ASUN Pitcher of the Week after tossing a no-hitter on Sunday, the fifth in program history.
Gilmore continued to rake for FGCU over the weekend. The sophomore corner infielder socked three homers, while driving in five RBIs in a 2-1 week for FGCU. Gilmore has been scorching hot to begin the season. In six games he's slashing .462/.579/1.115 with five home runs, 11 RBIs and 10 runs scored. His five bombs lead the conference and are tied for second nationally. His slugging percentage of 1.115 also ranks among the nation's elite at seventh.
On Sunday, Senger put together a start everyone dreams of as he tossed a no-hitter for the Hatters. He went the distance allowing no hits, no runs, while striking out 16 batters and allowing three base runners (1 BB and 2 HBP). It was just the fifth no-no in Stetson history and first since 1986. In two starts this season, Senger is 2-0 with a 0.60 ERA with 25 strikeouts compared to just three walks.
