St. Cloud State baseball poised for a historic finish

in SCSU Sports by

The St. Cloud State baseball team is poised for a historic year. The Huskies have marched to a 30-4 record this season, behind their potent offense led by senior first baseman Reese Gregory. Gregory leads the Huskies with 12 home runs, and ranks second in the nation in slugging percentage at .930.

The Huskies currently lead the nation in multiple offensive categories, such as batting average (.387), home runs per game (1.91), doubles per game (3.09), and scoring (10.8 runs per game). They have outscored their opponents 347-139 this season, and have hit 60 home runs. They need two more home runs to tie the team record of 62, which was set in 2015.

Gregory was also recently awarded the NCBWA DII National Hitter of the Week after he batted .579 and led the Huskies to a 4-1 record in a few tough matchups. He added 11 hits, 11 RBIs, and five home runs to go along with a strong defensive performance as well.

The Huskies return to action when they’ll face off with Bemidji State in a in-conference doubleheader on April 27. The Huskies are ranked #2 in the nation according to the NCBWA DII poll, #4 according to the D2Baseball.com poll, and #6 in the Perfect Game DII most recent rankings.
After the series with Bemidji State, the Huskies will have 5 more doubleheaders and then will play in the 2016 NSIC Championships and then the NCAA DII Central Region tournament.
