Weekly College Roundup

Bob Levey

Six weeks to draft day. How did the top college prospects do over the weekend?

There's about a month left in college baseball before the NCAA Super Regionals, and draft-eligible prospects are heating up as virtually everyone in the Astros front office goes on the recruiting trail. There were a lot of really good performances across the board as players try to compete with 1-1 front runners Mark Appel and Jonathan Gray.

Gray, in particular, took advantage of a soft spot in the schedule against the University of New Orleans. It took him 88 pitches to get through just 6 innings, but he didn't allow any runs on 2 hits and no walks, and he struck out 10.

Meanwhile, Appel faced off against the defending NCAA champs, Arizona, with characteristic good results - and a distressingly-high pitch count. Yes, Appel threw 124 pitches on Friday (77 strikes) and allowed 3 runs (2 earned) in 6.2 innings on 7 hits and 2 walks. He struck out 6.

Indiana State's Sean Manaea pitched game one of a doubleheader against Illinois State, lasting just 5.1 innings, but striking out 9. He allowed 4 runs (3 earned) on 6 hits and 3 walks, picking up the loss to fall to 5-3 on the season.

San Diego's Kris Bryant kept up his torrid pace, clobbering his nation-leading 18th, 19th, and 20th home runs of the season over the weekend against Santa Clara, setting a new school record for dingers as the Toreros swept the series. In all, he hit .353 and slugged - get this - 1.500 for the weekend.

Maybe the most interesting pitching line over the weekend came from Jacksonville's Chris Anderson, who lasted 9 innings and allowing just 1 run (unearned), despite giving up 6 hits and 3 walks, and striking out just 5.

Not to be overlooked is the performance from Fresno State outfielder Aaron Judge. The Bulldogs swept a five-game series against Air Force, largely thanks to Judge's hot bat. He went 8-for-19, with 2 doubles, a triple, and 2 home runs. He scored 9 runs, had 4 RBI, and even stole a base to show it who was boss.
