RICHMOND, Va. -- For the fifth time this season a University of Delaware baseball player has earned Colonial Athletic Association Player or Pitcher of the week honors, as senior infielder Jeremy Ake was named the CAA Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday.

Ake (Readington, N.J./Hunterdon Central) is the fourth different Blue Hen to win a CAA Player/Pitcher of the week award this season, joining Nick PattenBrandon Walter and Brian Mayer.

The infielder batted .545 (6-11) with three doubles, a home run, four runs scored and seven RBI this weekend. The performance propelled Delaware to a three-game sweep of Towson that clinched the Hens' a CAA Tournament berth. The senior contributed at least one hit and scored one run in all three contests. In Friday's nightcap, Ake went 3-4 with two doubles, a homer and six RBI. Ake currently ranks second in the CAA with a .358 batting average. Over the three-game span he had a .615 on-base percentage and slugged 1.091.

He shares this week's awards with College of Charleston junior Bailey Ober (Pitcher of the Week) and Elon's Kyle Brnovich (Rookie of the Week).

Delaware concludes regular season play this Thursday, Friday and Saturday at home against Charleston.
