March 8, 2005
EASTON, Pa. (www.lafayette.edu) - Lafayette parlayed its three-game series sweep over Canisius into a sweep of the Patriot League Baseball weekly honors. Senior leftfielder Rob Fioretti (Sparta, N.J./Sparta) earned the Offensive Player of the Week award for the second time in his career while junior righthander Matt Revelle (Columbia, Md./Atholton) collected his second straight Pitcher of the Week honor.
Batting from the second spot in the lineup, Fioretti posted a .636 batting average for the Canisius series. He drove in five runs and managed seven hits in 11 at-bats. The three-year starter also ripped his first career home run as part of a 12-run fifth-inning rally in a 13-7 win. The Leopards trailed 6-1 before the rally. Fioretti also won the award in his sophomore season (April 7, 2003) when he hit .474 and scored seven runs over a six-game span.
Revelle made one appearance for the reporting week, but it was enough to earn him a second straight Pitcher of the Week honor. He struck out a career-high 10 batters and walked just one in a 7-2 victory. Through his first two starts of the season, Revelle is 2-0 with a 1.20 ERA and 15 strikeouts to just two walks. His first outing of the season was a shutout at Gerogetown on Feb. 27 when he struck out five in a 3-0 victory.
