Lipscomb's Solomon, FGCU's Dye Capture Final @ASUNBSB Weekly Awards


LakePoint, Ga. - With the ASUN Conference Baseball regular season coming to a close this weekend, the final weekly honors went to Lipscomb's Lee Solomon and FGCU's Josh Dye, the league office announced on Sunday afternoon. 

Solomon collects his second career ASUN Player of the Week honor after carrying the Bisons to a crucial series win and a postseason berth. The senior, playing his final home games of his career, went 6-for-11 with six runs scored. He hit two homers and collected RBIs in all three games against FGCU. In the series opener, Solomon went 3-for-4 with four runs scored and a homerun. After dropping game two, Solomon smashed a two-run homer in game three to extend Lipscomb's lead in the must-win game. He also drew two walks and had a stolen base while slashing .545/.667./1.182 on the weekend. Solomon and the Bisons will participate in the ASUN Championship next week.    

Dye earns his second career ASUN Pitcher of the Week award, both coming this season after a masterful performance. The FGCU lefty was dominant in a three-hit complete game performance in Game two of the three-game set vs. Lipscomb. After the Eagles had dropped game one, Dye was pitching in a must-win game to keep FGCU's season alive, and he delivered big time for the Eagles. It was his second career complete game performance as he allowed only one run on three hits. He struck out eight batters and didn't give up a walk as he was in control all game long.
