Drew Dosch Named Horizon League Batter of the Week

Youngstown -- Youngstown State freshman baseball player Drew Dosch has been named the Horizon League Batter of the Week for the period March 21-27, the conference announced on Monday.

Dosch, a freshman from Canal Winchester, Ohio, earned the honor for the first time in his young career.

The Penguins' infielder hit .615 for the week, going 8-for-13 in a three-game series at Wright State. He had hits in all three contests and went a combined 7-for-9 in Saturday's doubleheader. Dosch also drove in three runs, scored once and stole a base.

Dosch has a hit in 12 of his last 14 games and is hitting a team-best .301.

Dosch and the Penguins will be busy with five games this week. They play Walsh at Cene Park on Tuesday, Niagara at Eastwood Field on Wednesday and a three-game series at Le Moyne over the weekend.
