April 2, 2007
WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington baseball's Charlie Kruer (Old Bridge, NJ/Old Bridge) was named the Atlantic 10 Conference Player of the Week, the league announced on Monday.
In five games this past week, Kruer hit .500 (9-for-18 with three home runs), had three multi-hit games, scored five times and drove in eight runs. He had an on-base percentage of .571 and finished with a slugging percentage of 1.111.
On Saturday, in game two of GW's three-game A-10 series against Richmond, Kruer fueled the GW comeback attempt, slugging two home runs and driving in a career-best six RBI, finishing just a double away from hitting for the cycle. In the Colonials' three games against the Spiders, the junior recorded 16 total bases and slugged 1.455. In one stretch, between games two and three, Kruer recorded a hit (3 HR, triple, single) in five of six consecutive at-bats.
The outfielder leads the Colonials with eight home runs and is second on the team in most offensive categories, including batting average (.314), slugging percentage (.610) and runs bated in (23).
George Washington (9-18, 2-4 A-10) plays host to Towson University on Tuesday afternoon at Barcroft Park.
