RICHMOND, Va. – VCU freshman infielder Vimael Machin has been named CAA Rookie of the Week after helping the Rams post a 3-1 record and clinch a spot in the upcoming CAA Tournament.
The San Lorenzo, Puerto Rico, native finished the week with a .438 batting average (7-for-16), a double, triple, home run, seven runs scored and a pair of RBI. Machin's best performance of the season came in Saturday's 9-3 victory over James Madison, where he finished 3-for-4 with a walk. Machin hit a single, a triple and a home run in the contest, finishing a double shy of hitting for the cycle.
The Rams will travel to Charlottesville on Tuesday, for a non-conference meeting with University of Virginia at 6 p.m. The two teams met on April 25th, with the Cavaliers posting a 7-5 come-from-behind victory in the contest.
