Brown named A-10 co-rookie of week

Freshman Shane Brown, who hit an inside-the-park grand slam in his first collegiate bat last week for the Charlotte 49ers, has been named the Atlantic 10 Conference's co-rookie of the week.

The home run by Brown, a Davidson native who starred at North Mecklenburg High, gave Charlotte an 8-4 win over Oakland (Mich.). He was rewarded with starts in the next two games, and he delivered two RBI in each, including a bases-loaded two-RBI single in Charlotte’s eight-run sixth inning Wednesday in an 11-3 win over Oakland. He also had a pair of doubles and two more RBI in Charlotte's 7-1 Thursday.

Charlotte (3-3) next plays Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Furman, then returns to Hayes Stadium for an eight-game homestand.
