SFA To Close Midweek Slate At HBU
May 6, 2013
Game Notes & What To Watch For:
- Seven teams are within two games of first place in the Southland Conference with just nine league games remaining. SFA is one of those teams, despite being swept in a three-game set last weekened at Lamar.
- SFA's Hunter Dozier saw his 16-game hit streak come to and end on with an 0-for-3 outing in the series finale vs Oral Roberts; however,he has maintained another streak and enters Tuesiday having reached base in 35 straight games. He has 29 walks to only 18 strikeouts in those 35 games, while hitting safely in 31 of them with a .435 batting average, .540 on-base percentage and .761 slugging percentage.
- Hunter Dozier is cementing his name in the SFA record books this season, having already set the all-time doubles record and rapidly moving up in a number of other categories. The junior infielder is one of just three Lumberjacks in school history with 200 career hits, and needs just 16 more to break Zach Gardner's career hits record at the school, in one less season. He also needs just one more double to break his school record set last season, and needs seven more two-baggers to tie UTSA's Michael Rockett for the Southland Conference doubles record, both in a single-season and career.
