Patten Named National Player of the Week

By Patrick Ebert from perfectgame.org

Perfect Game/Rawlings Player of the Week: Nick Patten, Delaware
Patten had a gigantic week, playing a huge role in Delaware’s 6-0 week in which they scored at least 15 runs in five of the six contests they played. In the middle of it all was Patten, who went 10-for-20 with 18 runs scored, 13 RBI, three home runs and a pair of doubles. Further proving just how locked in he was at the plate, he also walked nine times and was hit three other times, and did some damage once on the basepaths with three stolen bases. In the process the 6-foot-4, 210-pound sophomore first baseman raised his average over 100 points, from .226 to .333, at the end of the weekend as the Blue Hens improved to 8-6 with wins over Rider, Delaware State, UMBC and Wagner.

Patten Selected Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Week

RICHMOND, Va. -- Blue Hens sophomore Nick Patten was named Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Week Monday for his performance last week.

Patten (Butler, Pa./IMG Academy) posted a .500 average with three home runs, 18 runs scored and 13 RBIs during Delaware’s six game winning streak last week.

“Nick had about as good a week as I have seen here at Delaware,” Delaware head coach Jim Sherman said. “What’s ironic about Patten winning the award is that Jeremy Ake had probably just as good a week. Obviously those two were great candidates to win this week. Nick winning this award is great for our program and well deserved because he works very hard.”

The first baseman raised his average to .333 for the season due to his performance. Patten helped the Blue Hens defeat Delaware State, Rider and sweep Wagner this past weekend.

Patten is the first Delaware Blue Hen to win CAA Player of the Week since Kevin Milley, who won the award last May.

Other CAA Honorees included JMU’s Colten Harlow (Co-Pitcher of the Week), Michael Adams of Towson (Co-Pitcher of the Week) and Sean Mellen (Freshman of the Week) from Northeastern.
