Clemson’s Amick Honored as ACC Players of the Week

GREENSBORO, N.C. ( – Clemson first baseman Billy Amick has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Player of the Week for May 15, while Virginia right-hander Brian Edgington earned ACC Pitcher of the Week honors.

ACC baseball weekly honors are determined by a vote of a select media panel and announced on Mondays throughout the regular season.

Amick went 11-for-20 (.550) with two homers, four doubles, nine RBIs, eight runs, a 1.050 slugging percentage and a walk in four games last week – all wins and all on the road – as the No. 10 Tigers downed No. 8 Coastal Carolina and swept Virginia Tech in three ACC games.

At Coastal Carolina on Wednesday, Amick was 3-for-6 with a homer and three RBIs, then he went 8-for-14 (.571) with four doubles, a homer, six RBIs and six runs in three games at Virginia Tech over the weekend. On the week, the Batesburg, South Carolina native had three three-hit games and a two-hit game, while he also had at least one extra-base hit, scored at least one run and had at least one RBI in all four games. On the season, he is hitting .413 with 10 homers, a triple, 13 doubles, 41 RBIs, 30 runs, a .770 slugging percentage, .458 on-base percentage and two steals in 35 games.

Edgington turned in six scoreless innings and fanned eight batters to help No. 21 Virginia complete a series sweep of Louisville on Sunday. He surrendered just two hits and allowed only one runner to reach second base.

Beginning with the last out of the first inning, Edgington retired 13 straight batters before giving up his only extra base hit of the afternoon, a leadoff double in the sixth. Edgington, of Hatboro, Pennsylvania, improved to 7-3 on the season and is now tied for the staff lead with five quality starts.
