VESTAL, N.Y.—Redshirt freshman third baseman Brian Ruby has been named the America East Rookie of the Week, the conference announced Monday afternoon.

Ruby hit .556 (5-for-9) in three games last week, extending his current hit streak to 10 games. In the process, Ruby raised his team-high batting average to .423 in 19 games.

He had two hits and an RBI in the Bearcats’ two-game sweep of Maine. He is hitting a team-best .435 in conference play this spring.

Binghamton next plays at Cornell at 4 p.m. on Wednesday. The game was originally scheduled for Tuesday but pushed back a day due to bad weather.
