March 27, 2013
ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Senior Dave Milanes was named the Naval Academy Athletic Association Athlete of the Week, presented by Rolls-Royce, for his role in helping the Midshipmen go 4-1 last week.
Milanes had a hit in all five games last week, going 10-for-21 (.476) with a home run, 11 RBIs, four runs scored and four doubles. In Navy's 12-10 win over Delaware State, the senior went 5-for-5 for the first time in his career. He also drove in a career-best seven RBIs which included a pair of three-RBI doubles.
In the bottom of the sixth inning of Saturday's first game against Princeton, Milanes drilled a two-run double to lift Navy to a 2-1 win. With the Mids trailing 4-2 in Sunday's contest, he hit another two-run double in the seventh inning that tied the game as Navy went on to win 5-4 in 11 innings.
