Seattle University’s Griffin Andreychuk had an eight-game hitting streak snapped on April 17th, but the Nanaimo native quickly put together another one and is currently riding a five-game streak. In his last eight games, Andreychuk has gone 7-for-28 with seven walks and a pair of RBI. After a slow start to the year, he’s put together a solid sophomore campaign based on a .298 batting average with a home run and a team-leading 29 RBI. As we have come to expect from Andreychuk, he has also boosted his on-base percentage up to the .392 mark.
