BUFFALO, NY – For the second time this season, University at Buffalo senior second baseman Brad Agustin has been named Mid-American Conference East Division Player of the Week, the conference office announced on Monday afternoon.
The senior had an impressive week as the Bulls' offensive leader. Agustin hit an eventual game-winning two-RBI base hit to give the Bulls a 9-7 lead in the top of the 11th as Buffalo captured its first ever victory over Ball State on Sunday afternoon, 11-7. Agustin went 5-for-6 in the contest, tying the school's all-time single game record for most hits including a game-high five RBIs and a pair of runs.
Earlier in the week, Agustin scored his 137th career run in the opening contest of UB's non-conference doubleheader versus St. Bonaventure to become the program's all-time career leader for runs scored surpassing former Bull and Major League Baseball draftee Joe Mihalics.
Through Sunday's victory over Ball State, Agustin continues his climb in numerous all-time career categories. He is currently first in runs scored (144), second in at bats (715) and hits (218), third in most games played (185), home runs (18) and total bases (314), tied for third in doubles (38), fourth in RBIs (121) and walks (100) and tied for seventh in stolen bases (33).
The Bulls (16-17, 4-8 MAC) will open a five-game homestand at Amherst Audubon Field on Tuesday, April 20 versus Big Four rival Canisius at 4:00 pm.
