Meyer (FR/RF – Westfield H.S. IN) batted .500 (5-10) and slugged 1.200 while drawing two walks for a 1.783 OPS. He and the Tartan Pride not only went 3-0, but did so in dominant fashion by defeating the opposition by a combined score of 35-2. Meyer drove in a half dozen runs and scored seven tallies himself. His extra-base hits included a homerun and two triples. He was a true utility player, spending time at seven different defensive positions (all infield and all outfield positions).

Webb (SO/RHP – Fairborn H.S.) hurled a run-rule shortened complete game (five innings) to earn the win over Edison State in a ‘nonconference’ game. He struck out nine batters in five scoreless innings, surrendering just one hit and one walk.
With the 6-2 start to the season, Sinclair has moved up one spot to #2 in the latest NJCAA Division II baseball poll.
