Christopher Newport sophomore Nicholas Baham earned CAC Player of the Week accolades after leading the Captains offense at the Piedmont College Early Spring Classic by hitting .533 (8-for-15) with four extra-base hits including two home runs. Baham drove in six runs and scored five times. His most impressive game in three starts this weekend came against No. 6 Birmingham-Southern, in which he went 4-for-5 and fell just a double shy of the cycle while driving in four runs and scoring twice. He also led off with a single in the top of the 9th inning against Methodist to set up a four-run come-from-behind win for the Captains. He did not strike out in 15 at-bats and played a flawless first base, without an error in 30 total chances.
