Mizzou Baseball Recruits

Brown, West baseball handle BHS (

Through four batters Tuesday, Blake Brown had recorded two strikeouts and blasted a home run. Brown and his Normal West High School baseball teammates were only getting started.

The Wildcats pounded out 16 hits in four turns at bat, and Brown added a second home run to his winning performance on the mound as West claimed an 11-1 Big 12 Conference victory over Bloomington.

“I’m glad I could step into the (pitching) role and do a pretty good job,” said Brown, recruited by Missouri as an outfielder. “Today was definitely my best start of the year. I felt really comfortable on the mound.”

Brown struck out six and walked two in five innings as West improved to 23-4 and 8-1 in the Big 12.

“I’ve never gone that long in a game so the last inning was a little bit of a struggle,” Brown said. “(Catcher) Cody (Kinser) did well helping me out, and the defense did a really good job. It was a really tough day for fly balls with the wind, and they came through for me.”

Eric Garcia's regular season stats actually changed after the regular season was supposedly over. As an interested e-mailer says, "everyone thought it was over because of the swine flu cancellations. They brought the season back by a week and UIL the powers to be allowed the last games to be played in Texas. " Here are the updated regular season numers for the future Tiger:

.464 (39-for-84), 32 R, 82 TB, 14 2B, 3 3B, 8 HR, 45 RBI, 17 BB, 6 SB, .976 Slg%, .547 OB%

Eric Anderson has been chosen for the roster of the Colorado Rockies Top 50 Senior All-Star Game, to be played June 14th at Coors Field.
