Newport News, Va. –  Saint Louis’ Alec Solé has been named the Atlantic 10 Baseball Player of the Week, while Charlie Dant of Dayton was named Pitcher of the and Mike Geannelis of UMass was tabbed as Rookie of the Week.

Solé returned from injury to lead the Billikens to a 4-0 record last week. He hit .529 with an .824 slugging percentage and a .600 on-base percentage. In a three game A-10 sweep of Fordham, Solé was 7-for-12 (.583) with four RBI and four runs scored.  Against SIUE, Solé hit the first home run of his career (including prep). He is in the midst of a 19-game on-base streak. 

Dant pitched the first complete game shutout of his career on Saturday, earning an important 5-0 victory over La Salle for the Flyers. The sophomore righty went well above the 100-pitch count to blank the Explorers and hand Dayton its first win of the week. With just four hits allowed and nine strikeouts, Dant held the La Salle batters in check for all nine innings. The performance was Dant’s third complete came of the season and his sixth win of 2014, which ties for the team-high. He is also now tied for sixth in the A-10 in wins and third in both innings pitched and complete games.

Geannelis had a strong week at the plate and on the mound for UMass.  He earned both wins for the Minutemen out of the bullpen in a 2-1 week, tossing 4.2 scoreless innings and allowing only three singles with no walks and five strikeouts over two appearances to help UMass snap VCU’s streak of 12 straight series victories. In Sunday’s  contest against the Rams, he entered a tie game in the bottom of the eighth with a bases loaded, two-out jam and retired the first batter he faced to preserve the tie. Geannelis went on to pitch a scoreless ninth with a one-run lead to secure head coach Mike Stone’s 700th career victory.  Geannelis also pitched the Minutemen to a 5-4 extra inning win vs. the Rams on Friday, retiring 10 of the 12 batters he faced, including four via strikeout.  Additionally, the Williamstown, Mass. native hit a team-best .625 (5-for-8) on the week, logging multiple hits in both games where he was in the batting order with a double and an RBI in each contest.
