The Sun Prairie, Wis., native batted 6-for-13 in three games during the week. He hit 2-for-5 with a double, a run and an RBI in the Gophers' win against North Dakota State on Wednesday.

Handel then batted 4-for-8 with five RBIs and two runs in Minnesota's first two games at Iowa. He hit a home run in the series opener, and three doubles in the second game.
