He had at least one hit in all five games, including three against Tarleton State on Tuesday. He had two hits against Newman in the series opener. For the season Migl is hitting .333 with nine doubles, 23 RBI and 29 runs scored.
Migl’s honor marked the sixth time this season that a Rattler has received Heartland Conference honors and the third time that a Rattler has earned Hitter of the Week recognition.
