The team’s star batter and star pitcher teamed up to quash Arizona’s four-game slide.
Not only did the team snap a four-game losing streak, but they also brought an end to a six-game home losing streak.
With the 2018 draft signing deadline for non-college seniors rapidly approaching, the high school shortstop out of Irvine, California is reported to be looking for a $3,000,000 signing bonus in order to pass on his commitment to UCLA.
