After launching three home runs last week and becoming the 10th Bear to join the 100-hit club, senior Brian Luebcke (Astoria/Monsignor McClancy) was named the Skyline Conference Baseball Player of the Week for the second time in three weeks.

Luebcke homered in three straight games and accumulated seven hits over a five-game stretch to to reach the 100-hit milestone in game two against University of Maine at Presque Isle—his 106th game played and 301st collegiate at bat.

Luebcke batted .368 (7-for-19) and slugged 1.000 as St. Joseph’s moved back above .500, improving to 8-7 after a sweep of UMPI. In addition to his three homers—the fifth of his college career—the versatile pitcher/infielder also knocked three doubles, driving in 11 of the team’s 33 runs on the week and scored six times, all team-highs.

Luebcke has hit successfully in all but one game this season and reached base safely in all 15 games.

On the mound, Luebcke improved to 2-0 on the season, recording his second complete game victory of the season, striking out five and walking none in seven innings of work in a 5-4 walkoff win over SUNY Poly.
