Last week, Trevor Nathanson extended his hitting streak eight games, reached base at a .786 clip and boasted an impressive 1.200 slugging percentage en route to being named Great Lakes Valley Conference Player of the Week.

The junior third baseman for the University of Missouri–St. Louis baseball team helped the UMSL Tritons to a 2-1 record on the week, including a doubleheader sweep over Quincy (Ill.) University. Nathanson went a combined 7-for-10 at the plate, knocked six RBIs, scored three runs and hit 12 total bases.

In the wins against Quincy, he was five-for-five with five RBIs and three runs scored. He reached base each time he stepped to the plate, drawing three walks and one hit by pitch.

In a 6-3 loss to Missouri University of Science & Technology (Rolla) on Saturday, Nathanson added two hits and an RBI in five plate appearances.

At the time Nathanson was named GLVC Baseball Player of the Week, he led the Tritons with a .344 batting average this season and has 44 hits, including 11 doubles and six home runs, 32 RBIs and 26 runs scored.
