Orr Named Freedom Player of the Week
Orr (Langhorne, Pa./ Neshaminy) helped the Eagles take the first conference series of the year by producing multiple RBIs in each of the three games.
Entering the weekend, Orr's season batting average was a cold .063 (1-for-16), but he heated up against Wilkes batting 5-for-12 with eight RBIs, a double and a home run. Orr had a .750 slugging percentage for the weekend.
Orr's home run on Sunday was the eighth of his career, putting him in a tie for fourth with assistant coach Greg DeSarro on Eastern's career leader list.
On Friday, the Eagles lost 8-7 to Wilkes in extra innings with Orr going 3-for-6 with four RBIs. The Eagles concluded the series on Sunday, sweeping the home doubleheader. Orr had a two-RBI double in the 4-3 game one win and then hit his two-run home run in the second game, helping Eastern to a 10-0 victory.
Eastern is scheduled to host Muhlenberg College on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m.
