Hugh Adams broke the Sun Belt Conference Career Saves Record

Long-time Big Train player Hugh Adams (BT '06-'12) came across a record while continuing to help Florida Atlantic reach this year's NCAA Tournament. In a win over Western Kentucky in the first round of the Sun Belt Conference Tournament, Adams set the conference record for career saves as he recorded his 29th. The one-inning save consisted of three straight outs (one strikeout) and was his 16th of the season. 

George Mason concluded their season with a strong performance from their three Big Train players. Josh Leemhuis (BT '11) went 4 for 9 with a double while scoring a run and driving in two for the Patriots. Tucker Tobin (BT '11-'13) also chipped in with two double and a single over eight at bats while Brandon Gum (BT '12)reached base three times in seven plate appearances.
 
On the west coast, San Diego State got great production out of a Big Train duo. On the mound, Ryan Doran (BT '12) pitched eight innings and gave up just two runs on five hits and three walks while fanning nine batters. At the plate, Tyler France (BT '13) reached base in more than half of his plate appearances. He singled five times, walked once, and was hit by a pitch three times over the course of 17 turns at the plate. He also scored three runs and drove one in.
