Tallahassee, Fla. – For the second week in a row, a Seminole student-athlete was selected as the Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Player of the Week as Brandon Reichert was recognized for his efforts in leading Florida State to a series victory at NC State over the weekend.
Reichert registered multiple hits in all three games against the Wolfpack, while posting multiple RBI’s in games one and three. The senior first baseman posted a career-high four RBI’s in game one on Friday night to go along with his first home run of the season. He registered a sacrifice fly RBI in the second, a two-out, two RBI double in the seventh and solidified the Seminole victory on Friday night with a solo shot to left for his first round tripper of the season. Three of Reichert’s four RBI’s in game one came on two outs.
In game two, Reichert was one of three Seminole hitters to register multiple hits as he recorded a double in the fourth and a single in the eighth.
Reichert then capped a Seminole come-from-behind victory in game three. With the bases loaded and the Seminoles trailing 4-2, Reichert gave the Seminoles their first lead of the game, a lead they would not relinquish, by lacing a bases clearing double to right field. Reichert finished Sunday’s game with three consecutive hits.
The Tallahassee, Fla., native was also perfect from the field in all three games converting on all 38 chances at first base. He reached double-digit put outs in all three games.
Against Florida, Reichert registered a two-out RBI single up the middle in the seventh as well as converting on all eight fielding opportunities at first.
Reichert and the Seminoles return home after seven consecutive road games and will face Jacksonville in a mid-week contest on Tuesday, April 10. FSU then welcomes Virginia Tech to Dick Howser Stadium for a three-game series beginning Friday, April 13 at 7:00 pm. Saturday’s contest between the Seminoles and the Hokies will be played at 4:30 pm, while first pitch for the series finale on Sunday will take place at 1:00 pm.
