Hunter Renfroe reached base 11 times in 16 attempts.
In another strong week of performances from Big Train players across the country, it is Hunter Renfroe (BT '11-'12) who sticks out above them all. Over four games at Mississippi State, Renfroe reached base 11 times in 16 attempts. Three of those times he barely graced the basepaths with his presence as he jogged around them for home runs. He also accumulated a double and two singles to go along with his five walks. Once on the basepaths, he continued to show his talents as he swiped two bases as well. His three home runs helped him drive in six runs and come around to score five times.
San Diego State benefited once again from the Big Train pitchers on its roster. This week, Ryan Doran (BT '12), Ethan Miller (BT '12), Bubba Derby (BT '13), and Justin Hepner (BT '13) all chipped in from the mound. They combined for a 2-0 record (and a save) over 12 innings of work, giving up only one earned run on ten hits and two walks while striking out 13 batters. All of them had good weeks that added up to a great contribution for the Aztecs.
