CORPUS CHRISTI – Jonathan Gonzales of Texas A&M - Corpus Christi baseball has been named the GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Gonzales earned the award following his Southland Conference performance last week.
Gonzales exploded for three home runs and 10 RBI while hitting .500, slugging 1.056 and getting on base exactly half the time during the week against Houston - Victoria and league-leading Sam Houston State. Gonzales started the week off with a 4-for-4 game with two homers and six RBI to lead the Islanders to victory against UHV.
On Friday against the first place Bearkats, Gonzales hit a sacrifice fly to increase the Islanders lead to the eventual 5-2 winning margin. On Saturday, Gonzales added three hits and two RBI on his third home run of the week, while rounding out the weekend series with a two-hit game and another RBI. Gonzales registered an RBI in each game, and had at least two hits in three of the four games played.
Gonzales and the Islanders will take on Texas - Pan American tonight in the final midweek game of the year. The Broncs travel to Chapman Field for a 6 p.m. first pitch against Texas A&M - Corpus Christi.
