Ball State baseball's Ryan Spaulding posted a .500 batting average in the Cardinals sweep of Mid-American Conference East Division leader Kent State last weekend to earn MAC West Division Player of the Week honors.

With the three wins, the Cardinals remained in first place in the MAC West Division and improved to 35-16 overall and 19-4 in league play.

In the top of the ninth of Saturday’s win, the sophomore second baseman doubled off the wall to put runners on second and third and eventually scored the winning run in a game the Cardinals trailed by one run heading into the ninth inning.

In the Friday win, Spaulding’s eighth inning grand slam put the Cardinals ahead 16-5 and ensured Ball State’s victory over Kent State.

Ball State will travel to Dekalb, Ill., for a three-game series with the Huskies Thursday through Saturday.  The Cardinals own a 2.5 game lead over Central Michigan for MAC West Division crown and the overall No. 1 seed in the MAC Tournament.
