April 19, 2005

Brown sophomore infielder/pitcher Bryan Tews (Park Ridge, Ill.) has been named the Ivy League's Player of the Week after batting .478 with eight RBI and tossing a two-hitter in a week where the Bears surged to second place in the Red Rolfe Division standings. In the four-game sweep at Dartmouth, Tews batted .571 in 14 at-bats, driving in eight runs and scoring four. In game one on Sunday, Tews recorded the first grand slam of his career to give Brown a 4-0 lead. He finished the game 4-5 at the plate with two runs scored. In game two, he drove in the game-winning run in the 11th inning as he went 2-5 with two RBI and a run scored.

The previous day, Tews was on the mound, leading the Bears to a 4-1 game one victory. Tews pitched all seven inning, giving up just one run off two hits. He retired 16 batters in a row only until the Big Green reached on an error with one out in the seventh. He posted four straight perfect innings to that point and finished the outing with four strikeouts and just one walk. In the second game, Tews moved over to third base and went 2-4 at the plate with two RBI and a run scored. He also went 2-4 in a win against Sacred Heart on Thursday. Tews went errorless in the field, recording seven assists and six putouts in seven games.
