George Mason University right fielder Greg Deares (Archbishop Curley) has put together a 17-game hitting streak for the Patriots (23-7), who have won 12 of their past 13 games.

Deares, who transferred from UMBC last year, is 34-for-71 in the past 17 games with seven doubles, three home runs and 27 RBI. This season, Deares is hitting .398 with eight doubles, one triple, four home runs and 35 RBI.

He ranks sixth in the Colonial Athletic Association in batting average and eighth in RBI.

In Wednesday's sweep of Howard University in a doubleheader in Fairfax, Va., Deares went 4-for-6 and had five RBI.

In a 5-3 win over UMBC on Tuesday, Deares went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI.

"Greg proved from his years at UMBC that he is an outstanding Division I baseball player," George Mason coach Bill Brown said. "We're just fortunate that he chose to finish his college career at George Mason."
