Trey Lambert and Ryan Seiz

Liberty pitcher Trey Lambert and second baseman Ryan Seiz have been named ECAC Players of the Week for the week ending March 30.

Earlier in the week, both players earned Big South Conference weekly awards.  Seiz was named the Big South Conference Baseball Player of the Week, while teammate Lambert was tabbed Pitcher of the Week for games played March 24-30.

Lambert, a senior from Tazewell, Va., posted a one-hit complete game shutout win over Presbyterian College, this past Friday.  In the rainy conditions, the right-hander struck out seven hitters with no walks.  The only hit he allowed was a two-out double in the first inning, as he held the PC hitters to a .033 average.  He retired the last 14 hitters he faced to close out the contest.

Seiz, a junior from Perkasie, Pa., batted .571 with eight hits and four RBI to lead the Flames to a series sweep against Presbyterian College, last weekend.  In game one of the series on Friday, he went 3-for-5 with three doubles.  He followed that effort with a pair of hits, three RBI, a double and his team-leading sixth home run of the year in Liberty's 8-0 win, Saturday.  The Flames second baseman finished the series with three hits on Sunday afternoon in another 8-0 Liberty victory.  Seiz hit over .500 in all three games and scored three runs.

Seiz, whose home run in the eighth inning last night gave Liberty a 4-3 win over Duke, Lambert and the rest of the Liberty Flames, travel to College Park, Md., for contest against the Maryland Terrapins, this afternoon.  First pitch is scheduled for 4 p.m.
