Where were you this weekend? I was home in Columbia, South Carolina where the Gamecocks hosted Florida for an epic weekend showdown where the series winner would emerge in sole possession of 1st place in the SEC East. South Carolina won Friday night’s game 4-1 as I took in the game several rows behind the third base dugout. LHP Jordan Montgomery showed a sharp fastball-changeup combo and was topping out at 91-92 mph on the gun.
Want to know what happens when I’m not able to show up to support my team? Bad things. I couldn’t make the next two games of the series and Florida won both to upset the Gamecocks on their home turf and move into 1st place. Disappointing.
|3.||Cal Poly||Big West||30-5||4-0||6|
|5.||Florida State||Atlantic Coast||27-8||1-3||2|
|13.||Oklahoma State||Big 12||26-10||4-0||18|
|19.||Cal State Fullerton||Big West||18-13||2-2||15|
|23.||UC Santa Barbara||Big West||22-8||2-1||26|
|25.||Texas Tech||Big 12||28-11||4-0||30|
On to the highlights:
No. 5 Florida State (27-8, 14-4 ACC) and No. 1 Virginia (30-6, 14-4 ACC) remain in 1st place in the Atlantic and Coastal divisions. FSU dropped a series to Georgia Tech while UVA won their series with Clemson.
Ace of the Week: Drew Van Orden – RHP – Duke – The senior righty tossed a dandy (8 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, BB, 11 K) in a 2-0 win on Friday against NC State.
Statement Sweep of the Week: No. 9 Louisville (27-8, 7-2 AAC) hosted No. 14 Houston (26-9, 4-5 AAC) this weekend and handed the Cougars an impressive three-game sweep.
Pitcher Spotlight: Nick Burdi – RHP – Perhaps the most electric relief arm in the country. Burdi regularly hits triple digits and notched two crucial saves over the weekend against Houston.
Still in 1st place though...UCF – You won’t see the Knights (22-15, 10-2 AAC) in the polls but they have been doing work in conference play. They host Louisville next weekend in what should be a epic showdown.
AAC Hitter of the Week: Blake Davey – OF – UConn – The junior batted 6-for-12 with a pair of homers in the Huskies series win over Cincinnati.
(Big 12 Highlights)
Sweep of the Week: No. 7 Texas (29-8, 9-3 Big 12) continues their sensational return to Top Ten relevancy after a few lackluster years with a huge road sweep at rival Oklahoma.
(Big West Highlights)
Best In The West: No. 3 Cal Poly (30-5, 8-1 Big West) – What a banner year this is becoming for the Mustangs who carry the highest ranking of all West Coast based teams now. Ace lefty Matt Imhof still leads the country with 88 strikeouts.
Stock Up: UC Irvine (24-11, 8-1 Big West) – The Anteaters may be unranked and may have an absurd school mascot, but by golly don’t sleep on them as they are tied with Cal Poly for 1st after their sweep of Cal State Northridge.
Nation’s Leading Hitter: Joey Epperson – 3B – No. 22 UC Santa Barbara – The senior continues to rake and now leads the country with a .453 average. He should make an attractive value sign pick in the draft.
(Mid Major Highlights)
Entering The Rankings Part 1: No. 30 Liberty – The Flames (29-9, 14-1 Big South) continued to steamroll and that’s right, I called it last week that they’d be hitting the polls soon. Definite tourney sleeper to watch.
The Atlantic 10 has a new 1st place team and that is St. Joseph’s (19-9, 8-3 A-10), following their sweep of Fordham.
The Atlantic Sun also has a new 1st place team, Lipscomb (24-13, 12-3 A-Sun), following their big series win over heavy conference favorite, Mercer.
Big Run Machine: William & Mary – The Tribe (22-13, 6-2 CAA) scored 46 runs in their series win over James Madison and now lead the country with 331 runs scored or 9.46 runs per game.
Entering The Rankings Part 2: Electric Bugaloo: No. 26 Indiana (21-11, 8-1 Big Ten) – The Hoosiers – a preseason top ten team – are back, baby! Queue Aerosmith – Back In The Saddle Again.
Player Spotlight: Kyle Schwarber – C/1B – Indiana – Big weekend for the big hitter: 7-for-12, two doubles, one triple, and a home run versus Morehead State.
Mid Major Ace of the Week: Kyle Freeland – RHP – Evansville – The top draft prospect had a sensational outing against Wichita State, allowing four hits while striking out 15, including fellow top draft prospect Casey Gillespie twice.
Ragin Cajun Update: Yes, the Cajuns are still easily the best mid-major in the land. No. 2 Louisiana-Lafayette (34-4, 14-1 Sun Belt) leads the country in Team OPS (.955) and is a Virginia hiccup away from ranking No. 1.
Entering The Rankings Part 3: And You Thought We Were Done: No. 28 Pepperdine (27-8, 12-3 WCC) – Awesome campus, awesome baseball team.
Player Spotlight: Two-way stud Aaron Brown is now 7-1 on the mound with a 2.33 ERA and 65 K’s in 65.2 IP. He also leads the Waves with 6 bombs and is batting .328.
Top Dogs: No. 15 Washington (24-7, 12-3 Pac-12) – The Bulldogs remain in 1st place after a nice series win over Stanford.
2nd Best in the West: No. 4 Oregon State (27-7, 11-4 Pac-12) is right behind the Huskies following a road series win at Washington State.
Player Spotlight: Michael Conforto – OF – The likely first rounder had a big weekend (6-for-12) and now leads the nation with his absurd .538 OBP.
The SEC remains an absolute dogfight as not one team in the conference pulled off a sweep over the weekend…
Stock Up: No. 18 Florida (23-13, 9-6 SEC) – As you may have skipped in my intro, they moved into 1st in the SEC East after a road series win in South Carolina.
SEC West Leader: No. 17 Alabama (24-11, 10-5 SEC) – The Tide now have the best SEC record after their series win over bitter in-state rival Auburn.
In-State Showdown Winner: No. 12 Ole Miss (29-9, 9-6 SEC) – The Rebels went into Starkville, one of the toughest road environments in the country, and emerged with a series win over No. 22 Mississippi State.
National OPS Leader: A.J. Reed – 1B – Kentucky – The two-way stud now carries a 1.280 OPS at the plate.

Hitter Of The Week: Max Pentecost – C – Kennesaw State
Pentecost received this prestigious honor back in February and I’m handing him the weekly award again. Why? Because I can. Pentecost had a ridiculous 8-for-12 weekend at the plate which included a pair of bombs and a pair of doubles. He also drive in six, scored five, stole two bases, and did not strike out once. All in one weekend, folks. Many consider him the best all-around catching prospect in the draft and I won’t argue with that considering he won Cape Cod League MVP last Summer and is batting .380/.435/.572 on the season. Here is Matt Garrioch’s draft profile on him.

Pitcher Of The Week: Aaron Nola – RHP – LSU
While he may not be the best overall prospect in the draft, Nola is easily the best pitcher in college baseball right now if you ask me. He struck out a career high 13 batters over seven dominant innings of work in LSU’s 5-3 win over Arkansas on Friday. He’s allowed just 5 earned runs all season and carries a 0.70 ERA in 64 innings pitched with 31 hits allowed, 13 walks, and 84 strikeouts. Nola stands at 6’1″ 195 pounds and according to this latest draft profile from Perfect Game (subscription required), may have pitched himself into Top 10 discussion in the 2014 draft.

That’s it for this week.
Welcome to the month of April where baseball season (and spring flowers) begin to enter full bloom. We are starting to enter the thick of the college baseball division races and the contenders will begin to separate themselves from the pack in the coming weeks. No changes to the no. 1 spot in the polls this week as Virginia still has a stronghold on their top ranking. Interestingly, no new teams have debuted in the writers poll this week. And get ready because we had a return of the no-no alert this weekend and boy was it a dandy.
On with the highlights.
No. 2 Florida State (26-5, 13-2 ACC) has rattled off seven straight wins after sweeping hapless and hopeless Notre Dame. Jameis Winston and the boys are primed and ready for a hickup from No. 1 Virginia (27-5, 12-3 ACC).
No-No Alert: Nathan Kirby – RHP – Virginia – The draft eligible sophomore wreaked havoc on the Pittsburgh bats en route to a no-hitter. Spoiler alert: He’s pitcher of the week
Wake Forest (22-12, 10-5 ACC) came up with a big series win over Maryland (19-10, 6-8 ACC) as those two teams may find themselves fighting each other for an at-large bid at the end of May.
No. 23 Miami (21-12, 11-4 ACC) has an eight-game win streak after sweeping Virginia Tech and is in 2nd place behind UVA in the Coastal division.
Boston College still
sucks is not a very good baseball team
UCF (20-13, 8-1 AAC) leads conference play and won a series over in-state rival South Florida over the weekend. Fun Fact: UCF is actually farther south than USF.
No. 10 Louisville (23-8, 4-2 AAC) and No. 11 Houston (25-6, 4-2 AAC) remain the top two ranked teams in the American. Both had series wins over Rutgers and Memphis respectively.
(Big 12 Highlights)
Everything’s Bigger In: No. 9 Texas – The Longhorns (26-7, 6-3 Big 12) are the top dog in the Big 12 and have won nine 0f ten.
The battle for Kansas: Kansas (21-11, 5-4 Big 12) traveled to Manhattan and left with a crucial road series win over Kansas State.
TCU picked up a sweep of West Virginia to improve to 5-4 in Big 12 play.
(Big West Highlights)
Top Dogs: No. 6 Cal Poly (26-5, 5-1 Big West) took a crucial series from No. 26 UC Santa Barbara (20-7, 2-4 Big West). The Gauchos were able to rock Matt Imhof in a 8-6 win in Game 1 but dropped the next two.
UC Irvine (21-10, 5-1 Big West) is off to a great start in Big West play as they are tied with Cal Poly for 1st after the Anteaters road sweep of Hawaii.
No More Streakin: Sean Newcomb – LHP – Hartford – The Maine Black Bears snapped his scoreless inning streak at 39.2 IP. Orel “B” Hersheiser can rest easy.
Stock Up: UAB – The Blazers (22-10, 9-3 C-USA) have blazed up to 1st place in the C-USA after sweeping LaTech and could be knocking on the poll doors awfully soon if they keep this up.
Not often we see Rhode Island talked about in this column so let’s give a shoutout to Lou Distacio who threw a one-hit shutout versus Fordham to win A-10 pitcher of the week.
Mercer (26-7, 10-2 A-Sun) is showing A-Sun opponents no mercy as they swept USC-Upstate over the weekend and are now 33rd in the RPI.
Lipscomb (21-12, 10-2 A-Sun) is doing their best to keep up with the Bears after sweeping ETSU over the weekend and the Bison took home both A-Sun weekly hitter and pitcher awards. Hunter Brothers threw a two-hit shutout for the Bison and don’t be surprised if the Rockies take him this June as he and Rockies closer Rex Brothers are ‘brothers’.
Indiana (18-10, 8-1 Big Ten) and the Hoosiers are in 1st place in the Big Ten after sweeping Iowa. Kyle Schwarber stat update: .333/.437/.553, 5 HR, 19 BB, 12 K
Sweeper of the Week: Liberty (25-8, 11-1 Big South) – The Flames unequivocally obliterated VMI over the weekend winning by a combined score of 26-0. Liberty is now 18th in the RPI and look like a tourney sleeper.
Pitcher Spotlight: Parker Bean – RHP – Bean nearly went the distance for the Flames on Sunday but finished with 8.1 IP, 2 hits allowed, and a walloping 16 strikeouts.
The Lion Tamer: Mat Batts – LHP – UNC-Wilmington – The Senior lefty shut down William & Mary’s nation leading offense to one run over 8 innings with 12 strikeouts on Friday. CAA pitcher of the week.
UPenn, a team I was not that impressed with when I saw them play Towson, is impressing me now as they lead the Ivy League with an 8-0 conference record.
Dallas Baptist (23-8, 5-1 MVC) has jumped out to an early 1st place lead in the MVC after a series win over Illinois State. The Patriots are 27th in the RPI and have an impressive 2.87 Team ERA.
UNLV (22-9, 11-4 Mountain West) continues to carry one of the nation’s best pitching staffs and the Rebels (No. 12 RPI) picked up two shutouts in a huge road series win at Fresno State.
Pitcher Spotlight: Erick Fedde – RHP – Dominated (7 IP, 5 H, 0R, 1 BB, 11 K) in a Friday night battle with another highly touted draft prospect, Jordan Brink (6 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 K).
Southeastern Louisiana gained some ground in the Southland division race with a series win at Central Arkansas. Draft sleeper Andro Cutura tossed a CG-Shutout on Friday.
Hot Streakin: Sacramento State – The Hornets (20-11, 9-0 WAC) are rolling as they’ve won 12 in a row and are in a class of their own in the depleted WAC.
Nation’s Best Mid-Major: No. 3 Louisiana-Lafayette – This isn’t changing anytime soon as the Rajin’ Cajuns (30-3, 11-1 Sun Belt) are off to a historic start and look like a serious CWS contender.
Yes, they’re for real: No. 20 Washington – The Huskies (22-6, 10-2 Pac-12) are in 1st place of Pac-12 play, something not even the Huskie player’s mothers saw coming.
Stock Down: No. 12 Oregon – The Ducks (22-10, 7-5 Pac-12) dropped a series to the Huskies, who aren’t messing around this year.
Stock Up: No. 5 Oregon State – The Beavers (25-6, 9-3 Pac-12) bump up to the Top 5 in the nation following a sweep of Stanford.
No. 4 South Carolina (26-5, 7-5 SEC) and No. 24 Florida (20-12, 7-5 SEC) are now tied for 1st in the SEC East.
Arkansas (20-12, 6-6 SEC) won a big home series over the Gamecocks, still the SEC’s top ranked team. Top prospect Chris Oliver and Jalen Beeks both tossed gems.
No. 16 Alabama (22-9, 8-4 SEC) now carries the best record in the ultra-competitive SEC after the Tide’s sereis win at Texas A&M.

Hitter Of The Week: A.J. Reed – 1B – Kentucky
Reed bashed three home runs over the weekend, and is hitting .377/.507/.781 with a nation-leading 12 bombs on the season. We’ve discussed him before as he is perhaps the best two-way player in the nation. He’s a top draft prospect on both the mound (6-1, 1.93 ERA, 52 IP, 32 K) and at the plate and it should be intriguing to see who drafts him as what this upcoming draft in June. He was named a national player of the week.

Pitcher Of The Week: Nathan Kirby – LHP – Virginia
Some weekends my choices are made incredibly easy for me on who to pick for this prestigious and world-renowned honor. That’s exactly what Kirby did as he pitched a 9-inning no-hitter with…18 strikeouts! Kirby is a sophomore (and Top 2015 draft prospect) who has really burst onto the scene this year with the Cavaliers after a forgettable freshman campaign. He carries a miniscule 1.03 ERA with 55 strikeouts in 52.2 innings pitched. He has allowed just 26 hits and opponents are batting just .146 against him. He stands at 6’2 and 185 pounds and was named the Virginia HS player of the year his Senior year of high school in 2012.

DOB: 9/20/88 Age: 25
Birthplace: Fulton, MD
College: St. Petersburg College (FL)
Drafted: 19th round, 2008 by Washington Nationals
Height: 6’0″ Weight: 200
Background: The Orioles acquired Steve Lombardozzi from the Tigers on Mar. 24 in exchange for veteran INF Alex Gonzalez, which shocked us all that an a 37 year old has-been on a minor league deal could fetch anything worthwhile in a trade. He’s a switch hitter and second baseman by trade but can also play all three other infield positions along and has seen time in the outfield too. Lombardozzi grew up in Howard County and played high school ball at Atholton, a field I have played at myself in recent years. Irrelevant. He’s a junior, son of former big leaguer (and WS champion with the ’87 Twins) Steve Lombardozzi, but has enough syllables in his last name to avoid using a “Jr.” at the end. The Nationals drafted him in the 19th round out of St. Petersburg College in 2008.
Lombardozzi quickly established himself as a solid mid-level prospect in the Nats minors, batting .296/.375/.395 with 16 stolen bases at Low-A Hagerstown in 2009. He won Nationals minor league player of the year in 2011 after batting .309/.360/.430 with 8 home runs, 9 triples, 25 doubles, 30 stolen bases, and just 78 strikeouts in 553 at bats. At age 23, he cracked the Nats opening day roster in 2012 as he utility man and had a solid rookie year in the role, batting .273/.317/.354 with 3 home runs an just 46 strikeouts in 384 at bats. His production waned to replacement level player status in the first half of 2013 (.234/.246/.294 in 184 at bats) but he picked things up dramatically (.302/.333/.415 in 102 at bats) in the second half.
The Good: Lombardozzi has a simple setup at the plate with minimal weight transfer and an aggressive contact oriented approach. He does a great job of putting the ball in play consistently and has struck out in just 11.1 % of plate appearances at the MLB level. His natural running speed is average but plays up on the basepaths due to aggressive and skilled baserunning. Steve has often been described as an excellent fundamental defender that is very “headsy” in the field and will make all the routine plays and throws expected of him at second and third. He can handle short in a pinch but lacks the range and arm strength to be considered more than a fringe-average defender there. In 2010, while playing in the Arizona Fall League, he won the Stenson Award, given yearly “to the player who best exemplifies unselfishness, hard work and leadership.” Sounds like a “Buck-type” of player to me.
The Bad: Lombardozzi is perhaps too aggressive at the plate, often trying to jump on the first pitch thrown. So while he doesn’t strike out a ton, that doesn’t mean he’s making quality contact with regualrity, which is probably why he only hit a pedestrian .259 for the Nats in 2013. He could stand to draw a few more walks, looking at his below average career walk rate of 3.7% and career OBP of just .297. He’s also a below average power hitter, utilizing a swing geared for hitting line drive singles with the occasional double in the gap. He had double digit steal numbers every full season in the minors but has just 9 stolen bases out of 15 attempts in the majors.
Overall Outlook: Lombardozzi had a down year for the Nats in 2013 but I think there’s still some modest upside here considering his high baseball IQ. He’s just 25 and he put up the kind of numbers in his 2011 season at AA/AAA that suggested he could develop into a lower tier regular at second base with a floor as a UTL guy. He needs to improve upon that grotesque 2.6% walk rate in 2013. He has actually lowered his K% at the MLB level from what it was in the minors so it’s possible that if he improves his selectivity at the plate, he could develop into a .280-.290 hitter. For now, Lombardozzi gives the O’s a young, cost-controlled player (set to make 500 K) who should serve them well in a bench role and can start in a pinch. Not a bad return at all for Alex Gonzalez.

The recycling bin of No. 1 Teams continues as Florida State dropped from the top spot with two losses over the weekend.
We had a no hitter tossed this weekend. I won’t say who yet but you might remember him playing a key role in Stony Brooks Cinderella run to the CWS in 2012.
With Carlos Rodon‘s continued struggles, he’s no longer considered the slam dunk to go top overall in this year’s draft, especially with the emergence of talented high school arms Brady Aiken and Tyler Kolek.
20. Jordan Brink – RHP – Fresno S
Rhys Hoskins went 4-for-4 with a HR, 2B, 3 RBI for Sacramento State on Saturday. He’s considered the top prospect in the WAC, which contrary to popular belief still exists.
New Mexico (16-8) is in 2nd place and the Lobos are 8-2 over their last ten games.
