INF - 6-3 - Sr. - Orlando, Fla.

Hernandez finished the week hitting .450 in five games, finishing with four homeruns for the week.

Hernandez also finished with a pair of doubles and a 1.150 slugging percentage for the week (.542 on-base), with three walks.  

Pitcher of the Week

Kelly won his first game of the season in a 14-0 victory over Southern, in which he set a single-game school record with 16 strikeouts in just seven innings of work. The senior left the game with a no-hitter intact through seven, as the Jaguars were held to just one hit total in the contest.
