MINNEAPOLIS – D3baseball.com released its national Team of the Week lineup for the week ending on April 7, and Salisbury University sophomore Jimmy Adkins was named as the team's utility player for his performances at the plate and on the mound.
Adkins recorded a .462 batting average at the plate in three starts at third base for the Sea Gulls. He scored three runs and drove home another six in his 13 at-bats while also stealing a base and drawing two walks.
Adkins also delivered on the mound, earning himself both a win as a starter and a save in relief. He closed out an 11-8 win over Wesley College on Wednesday afternoon, then earned the start on Sunday in which he tossed a complete-game shutout on the road against the top-ranked team in the country in Capital Athletic Conference rival Christopher Newport University. Adkins threw a total of 143 pitches in the dominating effort, scattering six hits and striking out six batters in the process.
The team returns to action on Wednesday, April 10 when it travels to Marymount (Va.) University for a 1 p.m. start.
