BEN ANDREWS, Linfield

Junior, First Base, Shoreline, Wash. / Shorewood HS

 

Andrews hit .500 in three games (6-12), crushing two home runs and a double for 13 total bases and a 1.038 slugging percentage. In a must-win series in which Linfield took two of three from George Fox, he knocked in five runs and scored six.  He homered with two outs in the ninth for the Wildcats’ only run in a 6-1 loss, went 2-4 with a double and three RBIs in a 10-5 victory, and was 3-4 with a homer and three runs scored in a 16-7 finale win.  He also was a rock at first base, digging out balls all weekend to give him a perfect fielding percentage (31 total chances, 30 putouts, 1 assist).
