Spencer also collected five walks to help him compile a .571 on-base percentage. He did some damage on the bases as well by going 6-for-6 on stolen bases.

Spencer pushed his average on the season to .395, and he is now 10-for-10 on stolen bases.

Lawrence returns to action on Saturday when the Vikings host the University of Chicago in a four-game set at Whiting Field to open Midwest Conference play.
