This week’s college round-up will feature a few Big Train players that have yet to be mentioned in previous weeks. The players are working hard for their respective teams, hoping they can fight their way into the College World Series.
Brandon Lowe (BT ’14) is continuing his incredible season for the Maryland Terrapins. He has posted a .402/.513/.690 slash line this season (batting average/on-base percentage/slugging percentage). This shows he is hitting for contact, power, and getting on base other ways. Lowe has nine doubles, two triples, and four home runs to go along with his 18 RBI. This week, he earned Big Ten Player of the Week honors.
Down one state, at Virginia Tech, Luis Collazo (BT ’13-15) earned his first win of the season against Radford, while coming out of the bullpen. Kit Scheetz (BT ’13-15) also earned his first win of the season this week. In the win, Scheetz allowed three runs over seven innings.
