IRVING, Texas - Marshall University's Victor Gomez was named Conference USA Hitter of the Week as announced by the conference office, Monday, for his performance during the week of April 21-27. The accolade is the first of his career.

Gomez capped off the week by going 11-for-21 at the plate with two doubles, two home runs and eight RBIs. Gomez, who has a .370 overall batting average (second on the team), hit his eighth home run of the season, a grand slam, in game two of the Thundering Herd's weekend series at UAB. Gomez also went deep during a 4-for-5 day in a win at Ohio last Wednesday. The freshman added a double and four runs scored during the Herd's 17-12 win over the Bobcats. Gomez had four multiple-hit games last week and is slugging at a.616 clip with 30 runs batted in on the season.
