LEBANON -- Senior Matt Greener was named the TranSouth Conference Baseball Player of the Week Monday by the league office after batting .636 in five games and helping the Bulldogs start the season by winning 4-of-5 outings last week.
Greener went 7-for-11 in four starts last week with four runs scored, three doubles, two home runs and 10 RBIs. He also recorded a walk and stole a base.
The Jupiter, Fla., native drove in a pair of runs in a 12-6 victory in CU’s season opener at North Alabama. He doubled twice and drove in a run in Friday’s opener against the Univ. of St. Francis and then registered six RBIs in the second game, hitting a solo homer and a grand slam in the same inning.
Greener hit just four home runs and drove in 29 runs all of last season in 183 at-bats. He had at least one hit in all five games and at least one RBI in four of the five contests.
Cumberland is currently ranked 17th nationally. The Bulldogs will host Viterbo University this weekend at Ernest L. Stockton Field.
