Blaum Tallies 7 Hits, Levy Strong in Relief

La Crosse, Wis. – The UCLA Bruins prolonged their blistering start to the season with a three-game sweep the Arizona Wildcats to remain atop the D1Baseball Top 25 Poll. Bryce Blaum’s productive weekend led Texas A&M to a conference series sweep of Kentucky as the Aggies ascended to No. 10, while future Loggers pitching continued to impress across the nation.

Returning Loggers infielder Bryce Blaum racked up seven hits in Texas A&M’s weekend series including two doubles and two triples, knocking in three RBI while scoring eight runs from the leadoff spot. Blaum pushed his season batting average to .327 with a .940 OPS in 26 starts, and his 32 runs scored ranks eighth in Division I baseball.

Seattle born right-handed pitcher Gabriel Levy has been dominant in relief for Davidson, adding 3.0 perfect innings to pick up his fourth save of the season in the Wildcats’ series sweep of conference opponent La Salle. Levy owns a 1.31 ERA in seven appearances during his freshman season, striking out 18 over 20.2 innings while surrendering just two walks and a .164 opponent batting average.

North Dakota State two-way player Hunter Koep had a productive weekend in the middle of the Bison lineup, going 4-for-10 with a home run and five RBI in a series victory over Western Illinois. Koep is slugging .813 on the season to complement his 3.52 ERA in 7.1 innings on the mound in his sophomore season.

UCLA reliever Jack Filby struck out two of the three batters he faced as the Bruins improved to 5-1 in Pac-12 Conference play. Filby possesses a sub-1.00 ERA with 13 strikeouts over 9.1 innings for the top ranked team in the nation.
