Gloor And Migani Collect Akadema/Northeast Conference Baseball Weekly Honors

HAMDEN, Conn. – Quinnipiac University baseball senior Chris Gloor (Bay Shore, N.Y.) and freshman Chris Migani (Orange, Conn.) won the first Northeast Conference weekly honors of the season for the Bobcats. Gloor was named the Akadema/NEC Pitcher of the Week while Migani received Rookie of the Week honors.

Gloor was masterful in Quinnipiac's 1-0 win against Fairleigh Dickinson on Friday, April 24. The 6-foot-3-inch lefty held the Knights scoreless through seven innings, scattering seven hits while walking two and striking out nine for his second-highest strikeout total this season against an NEC team after setting down 11 against Mount St. Mary's on April 4. Gloor improves to 5-3 on the season, while increasing his NEC-leading strikeout total to 67. The wins are an all-time personal best for Gloor, while his strikeout total leaves him one shy of his career-best 68 strikeouts in 2007 as a sophomore. Gloor's 224 career strikeouts are a Bobcats' Division I record while he also moves into third place all-time at Quinnipiac.

Migani, the Bobcats' starting shortstop and lead-off hitter, batted .421 (8-19) with two doubles, three RBI and four runs scored for the week. Migani was 1-for-3 with a run scored against UConn in a 14-4 loss and also posted a 0-for-4 day in the Bobcats' 1-0 win against FDU in the first game of their four-game series. He responded with three straight multiple-hit games, including a 2-for-4 showing in both ends of Quinnipiac's doubleheader on Saturday. He ended the series with a 3-for-4 day on Sunday with three RBI and a run scored in Quinnipiac's 8-4 win. For the year, Migani is hitting .291 (37-127) with two homeruns, 15 RBI and 20 runs scored. He also leads the team with eight doubles while ranking second in hits with 37.

Gloor and Migani are the first Quinnipiac baseball players to win a weekly honor from the Northeast Conference since John Delaney was named the Akadema/NEC Player of the Week on March 10, 2008.
