Liberty outfielder Doug Bream has been named the Big South Conference's Baseball Player of the Week, for games played April 4-10.  The league office announced the choice this morning.

Bream batted .737 (14-19) with six runs scored, eight RBIs, two doubles, one triple and two walks in four games last week.  The senior had four-or-more hits in three of the games, including a 5-5 day in a midweek contest with James Madison. 

The five hits were a single-game career-high for the outfielder.Bream surpassed his previous career-high of four hits in a 12-7 win over James Madison at Worthington Stadium on April 21, 2010.  It was the first time a Liberty Flame has had five hits in game since outfielder Curran Redal in a 14-8 victory over High Point in game one of a Big South Conference doubleheader at Worthington Stadium on April 3, 2010.

 After picking up a hit and RBI Friday at High Point, Bream had four hits in each of Liberty's weekend wins over the Panthers.  The outfielder went 4-for-5 and drove in four runs in Saturday's 9-0 win and was 4-for-5 with a double and three RBIs in Liberty's 14-9 victory on Sunday. For the week, he had a .762 on-base percentage and a .947 slugging percentage.

Bream will enter the week with a .365 batting average, leading the Flames with 50 hits and 31 RBIs.  He is tied for the team lead with 15 multiple-hit games on the year and is the Liberty leader with 14 multiple-RBI games.

Bream and the Flames will host the Presbyterian College Blue Hose in a three-game Big South series this weekend at Worthington Stadium.  The series opens on Friday, with first pitch scheduled for 7 p.m.
