Outlook: Having lost only one senior from last year, this year's team looks to build on last year's 8-6 record, which saw them capture a second straight MACSAC championship, according to Lefever. Having started four freshmen, two sophomores and two juniors last year, the starting lineup returns almost entirely intact. The offense should put up plenty of runs, led by Tate (.604, 11 RBI), Ian Edwards (.556, 23 RBI), Akers (.440, 19 RBI), Jake Edwards (.440, 8 RBI), Cosner (.333, 10 RBI) and Beirle (.394, 10 RBI). The pitching staff should also once again be strong, as six hurlers return, led by starting pitchers Ian Edwards ( 5-2, 2.51 ERA, 52 K) and Griffin (1-3, 4.20 ERA, 28 K). Tate, Jake Edwards, Tymes and Akers (1-0 4.50 ERA IN 9 IP) will all be counted on to take the mound when needed.
