CHANDLER BING
Junior Chandler Bengtson became the third straight Columbia player to earn Ivy League Player of the Week honors after registering a 1.863 OPS with six runs, three homers and nine RBI against St. John's and Dartmouth. The first baseman had a monster final two games against Dartmouth Sunday, belting a solo homer in the opener before unloading two more bombs in the series finale to help the Lions avoid a sweep. Both homers were three-run shots for his third career five-plus RBI performance. Bengtson is now riding a 27-game on-base streak and is now tied for eighth on Columbia’s career list with 18 home runs, one shy of tying Alex Ferrera ’11CC for seventh place.
