Cody Brown (BT'14,'15) is coming off a hot week, hitting 3 doubles against Alabama

This week we will start with the Maryland Terrapins where Brandon Lowe (BT ’14) has continued to show that he is one of best second baseman in the country for the 14-4 Terps.  He is hitting .412 from the plate with a .538 On-base Percentage. This week alone, Lowe has managed 11 hits, including three doubles, and a home run, while also scoring 10 runs and knocking in four RBI.

The 19-3 Florida Atlantic Owls have continued their great start to the season.  This past week, Ricky Santiago (BT ’13) had six hits, including two doubles, a home run, and three RBI, putting him at a .344 batting average this season.  Bo Logan (BT ’13-’15) has lowered his ERA to 1.80 on the season, recording a 2-0 record and three saves in 15 innings of work.  This week, Sean Labsan (BT ’14) pitched a five inning, one hitter, allowing no runs, while striking out five batters.

At Cal State Northridge, Calvin Copping (BT ’15) is 3-1 on the year.  Over 25.1 innings, he has posted a 3.20 ERA and a 10.66 strikeout per game rate, second best on the team.

Mississippi State has seen quality play from Big Train players this past week.  Cody Brown (BT ’14-’15) has three doubles and a stolen base, while Wes Rea (BT ’14) has two doubles and five RBI this week.

Brandon Gum (BT ’12, ’15) has put together a nice season for George Mason so far.  On the season, Gum is batting .364 with three doubles and eight RBI.

San Diego State is home to some of the top prospects in all of college baseball including former Big Train players, Ty France (BT ’13) and Bubba Derby (BT ’13).  Ty France is now hitting .370 on the season, and this week has five hits and three RBI.  Bubba Derby pitched wonderfully in an upset win over #13 Texas Tech.  In eight innings of work, Derby allowed no runs on three hits while striking out 11 batters.  Andrew Brown (BT ’14-’15) is also continuing his great play at the plate, batting .318 with 27 hits and 10 RBI.

At Tulane, Stephen Alemais (BT ’14) has raised his average to .349, garnering seven hits and two stolen bases this week. Tim Yandel (BT ’13-’15) had a pinch-hit walk-off double this week that scored a hustling Alemais from first base, in a 10-inning bout against Xavier.

Parker Guinn (BT ’13), out of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, had some late inning heroics for himself.  Going into the bottom of the 10th inning, down by one run, Guinn hit a walk-off two-run home run to beat Murray State.  Coach Tony Stoecklin said of Guinn, "He brings so much to our team.  He's a leader, he's a baseball person, he understands the game, he loves the game and he competes". 

Stay tuned for next weeks recap of Big Train players in college ball.
