OKLAHOMA CITY (April 22, 2013) – Oklahoma Christian outfielder Dillon Andrews was named Monday as the Heartland Conference’s baseball hitter of the week.

Andrews, a senior from Midwest City, hit .438 for the Eagles last week as they went 3-1, with all those games away from home against conference foes during a three-day span. During the week, he went 7-of-16 at the plate with seven RBIs, four doubles, three runs scored and a pair of stolen bases while posting a .688 slugging percentage.

In a 14-13 win at McMurry (Texas) last Monday, Andrews went 4-for-5 with two doubles, a season-high five RBIs, a walk and two stolen bases while scoring twice. He delivered the RBI single in the seventh inning that put OC ahead for good.

His hot hitting continued with two doubles in a doubleheader split at Texas-Permian Basin on Tuesday, and he reached on a bunt single and scored the game-winning run in the 10th inning of OC's 6-5 win in the second game. OC also beat regionally ranked Texas A&M International 4-1 on Wednesday.

Andrews is the second OC player to win the Heartland’s baseball hitting award this season, joining Blake Stringer, who received the honor for the week of March 4-10.
