Current, former and incoming Rice baseball players are participating in Summer Ball leagues around the country. Here’s the latest on those Owls.
Summer seasons are winding down. Once everything is set in stone we’ll put together a quick wrap up piece with some notes from the summer as a whole. From what I can tell, the only league still in action with Rice baseball players that are posting stats is the Premier League in Texas. The final games in that league are set for next weekend.
The updated stats from the Premier league we did get included further impressive numbers from the incoming Owls. It was a huge week for Nathan Becker, who kept his summer average above .400. Becker went 4-for-10 in three games, striking out once and hitting a double.
Also in action were Cullen Hannigan, Dominic Cox, Eric Benitez and Guy Garibay. All four of those saw their averages dip this week. Garibay is still slugging a comfortable .614.
Ben Content through his 20th scoreless inning of the summer this week. He did not allow a hit in three frames this week, striking out three and walking one. He hasn’t announced his future destination after entering the transfer portal prior to the summer.
Meanwhile, Brandon Deskins faced two batters this week, and struck out both. AC Plum got roughed up a bit in the final appearance of his summer season, taking his only loss in nine appearances.
We’ll be back next week with some end of summer thoughts on the Owls as a whole. Many have wrapped up their seasons. Only a handful of stat lines are expected to change.
*All stats as of Aug 15 taken from league and team websites. Not all participating players have complete stats and some have no official stats listed at all.
