Hutson named Southland Conference Hitter of the Week
|Junior Ryan Hutson was 9-for-12 with three homers and seven RBIs last weekend.
Hutson helped lead UTSA to their second consecutive conference sweep over the weekend against McNeese State, which pushed its winning streak to a season-best six games. The Round Rock native was 9-of-12 (.750 BA) with seven runs scored, two doubles, three home runs and seven RBIs. He also walked three times for an .800 on-base percentage and his 20 total bases translated to a 1.667 slugging percentage. The second baseman recorded a trifecta of three-hit games and left the park in all three contests.
Hutson, who is hitting a team-best .360 on the season with 14 homers and 42 RBIs, now has 38 career home runs and that is tied with Michael Rockett (2006-09) for third place on the program’s all-time list. He enters the final week of the regular season riding an eight-game hit streak in which he is 20-for-32 (.625 BA) with four home runs and nine RBIs.
The Roadrunners (20-27, 11-19 SLC), two games behind Nicholls (13-17 SLC) for the eighth and final spot in this month's Southland Tournament, begin their final league series of spring on Thursday night at Central Arkansas (18-32-1, 9-20-1 SLC). First pitch is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at UCA Field.
