Scott Donaghue To Play In NEIBA All-Star Game At LeLacheur Park On Monday, June 4

Quinnipiac baseball sophomore Scott Donaghue (Marlboro, N.J.) has been selected to play in the 2013 New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association All-Star Game on Monday, June 4 at LeLacheur Park in Lowell, Mass. at 7 p.m. 

Donaghue will play on the University Division Team, comprised of Division I All-Stars that will face the College Division Team consisting of Division II and III All-Stars. 

Donaghue had a career-year, posting career-bests, in his second season, in hits (53), home runs (4), runs-batted-in (36), doubles (11) and slugging percentage (.406). Donaghue's four home runs and 36 RBI led the Bobcats, while he also accumulated nine multiple-RBI games and 14 multiple-hit games.

Of his most impressive performances, Donaghue had a four-hit day against Notre Dame in which two went for doubles while he also drove in two runs. Donaghue also had a two-home run, four-RBI day against Hartford and a seven-RBI outing against Central Connecticut State that included a grand slam in a 11-4 win. Donaghue became the first Quinnipiac player to drive in seven runs in a game since Jeff Mainetti had seven RBI's against Fairleigh Dickinson on Mar. 26, 2013. Donaghue hit a three-run double in the fifth and then followed with a grand slam in the sixth.

Donaghue is the first Quinnipiac player to appear in the NEIBA All-Star Game since Kyle Nisson played in 2011.
