Tommy Edman is the Centre Daily Times’ Spike of the Week.
In five games this week, the 21-year-old Stanford product was 5 of 15 (.333) at the plate with four RBIs and five runs scored. He also drew seven walks while striking out only three times.
Edman’s patience in the batter’s box paid dividends for State College, as he helped the Spikes rattle off a five-game winning streak.
In State College’s 11-1 win over Batavia on Wednesday, Edman had three hits, including a double, to plate two runs.
The California native’s second big performance of the week came on Saturday. He had three hits, including a two-bagger, to go along with a walk and two RBIs in a 5-2 win over West Virginia.
Edman and the Spikes finish out their series against the Black Bears at 7:05 p.m. Monday.
