PICK'EM FORMAT THIS 2 Game Series - RUN DIFFERENTIAL with both Games Combined


Though it did not make a lot of headlines, Arkansas-Pine Bluff made some good sized strides in the short 2020 season. Coach Carlos James and his staff saw the Lions’ win total go from eight in 50 games of 2019 to six in 18 games in 2020. Not bad progress, right?

The offense will be led by 1B Humberto Maldonado (.304/.385/.449), a big stick in the middle of the order who hit a jog-off grand slam to beat Prairie View last season. The middle infield of 2B Jarficur Parker (.271) and SS Dante Leach is a pair of defenders who the staff thinks can both eventually play at the professional level. CF candidate Tim Martin is a transfer from UAB and is a five-tool talent with good speed. He’ll team with LF Brandon Simon (.244) and RF Andrew Enwiya, a JC transfer from Siskiyous College in California. Also look for big contributions from lumberjacking 6’5” DH/1B Nick Kruetzer, who has spent the last two summers playing in the Northwoods League and is certainly on the scouts radar this season.

FYI, UAPB did not play this weekend so we will be facing their top pitching staff.......
