Spring Update on Players

 

Wausau, WIS – The Wisconsin Woodchucks’ season may still be 58 days away, but college baseball is in full swing in conference play. Here is a look at how some of your 2017 Woodchucks are doing.

Left-handed pitcher Scott Kobos continues to excel on the mound for St. John’s River State College with a 1.69 ERA and 52 strikeouts in 53.1 IP. Kobos pitched a complete game with 6 strikeouts in a win against Daytona State on March 22nd.

The Texas A&M Aggies have a 17-9 record this season thanks in part to the bats of Hunter Coleman and Logan Foster.  Coleman is hitting .319 and drove in nine runs across 14 starts. He drove in four of seven at bats against TCU. Foster boasts a .324 batting average and 26 runs scored including two homers in a win against Pepperdine.  Foster received SEC Freshman of the Week honors after he had a double, triple, two RBI and three runs scored in a win against the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.

Lamar University’s Chad Fleischman picked up Southland Sports Hitter of the Week honors recently with a .529 batting average, .941 slugging percentage and nine hits, seven RBI, and one home run – a walk-off bomb against Incarnate Word. He is hitting .304 with 14 RBI so far this season. Stevie Mangrum of Virginia Tech pinch-hit a solo home run in a game against Pitt and has a .260 batting average with five RBI.  Brylie Ware of the No. 15 University of Oklahoma has a.373 batting average with 16 RBI. Ware went 3-for-3 with three RBI as a pinch-hitter in a win against Buffalo.  He helped the Sooners get the win this weekend against No. 2 Texas Tech with an impressive defensive effort at first base.  Jackson Owens of the Texas A&M Corpus Christi Islanders has also been solid at bat lately, hitting a triple that pulled the Islanders ahead against the New Orleans Privateers.

New Orleans Privateer Tristan Clarke has been a powerhouse at bat with a .321 batting average with 30 RBI and eight home runs.  He recorded seven RBI in one game alone in a win against Alcorn State.  In that game he went 3-for-4 with a double, triple and home run.  It was just the third time in the past seven seasons that a Privateer has recorded six or more RBI in a game.
