Brian Carney, Oberlin
Oberlin senior outfielder Brian Carney propelled the Yeomen back into the NCAC Tournament after hitting .533 (8-for-15) last week in DH sweeps over Hiram and Wabash. Five of his eight hits on the week went for extra bases, including smashing his team-leading and program-record tying seventh homer of the season in a 4-3 win over Allegheny on May 1st. He also smacked a pair of doubles in Sunday’s 10-4 win over Wabash in the NCAC crossover series. In the four games combined on the week, he drove in six runs and totaled 15 bases for a 1.000 slugging percentage.
Nanak Saran, Wooster
Wooster junior right-hander Nanak Saran was lights out last week as didn’t allow an earned run in two league wins against Hiram, 5-0, and Ohio Wesleyan, 10-0. In the win over Hiram, he struck out six and allowed five hits in 6.0 innings of work, before striking out seven and allowing just three hits in an 8.0 inning complete-game shutout against the Bishops.
