Nick Dunn was a force at the plate, running an impressive .529 batting average with an OPS of 1.476. The infielder went 9-17, getting a hit in every game he played, two of them being doubles and one being a home run. Dunn also stole 2 bases and was walked 5 times last week. The sophomore out of Maryland started every game for the Terps in his first two seasons, and his collegiate resume already consists of a 2016 Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American, 2016 Big Ten All-Freshman, and 2016 Third Team All-Big Ten honors.
