Tilton named A-10 co-rookie of the week

Charlotte freshman Cory Tilton was named the Atlantic 10 co-rookie of the week in baseball on Monday after a strong weekend performance in a three-game series with Fordham.
Tilton filled in as center fielder after starter Brad McElroy suffered a twisted ankle. Tilton hit leadoff for the first time this season and went 3-for-4 at Fordham on Saturday, scoring three runs in Charlotte's 7-1 win.
On Sunday, he drove in three runs with a two-RBI triple, and scored a run in the 10-2 Charlotte victory. He was 5-for-9 in the Fordham series and had an RBI in Charlotte's win last week over Winthrop.
