His biggest hit of the week was a two-out, two-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning that snapped an 8-8 tie and gave the Pride a 10-8 win over Northeastern.
Jackson also achieved a career milestone during the week as he recorded his 200th career hit in the Pride's game against Monmouth. Jackson is just the eighth Pride player to eclipse 200 career hits and his 206 hits now rank seventh all-time at Hofstra.
