LEE NAMED TO NATIONAL HONOR ROLL
Arkansas State sophomore Jacob Lee (Dans 2009) has been named to the CollegeBaseball360.com Primetime Performer Weekly Honor Roll for his performance on the mound in leading the Red Wolves to a 3-1 victory over No. 18 Western Kentucky April 4.
Lee, one of just 16 players from across the nation to be named to the list, struck out eight batters in 6.2 innings to get the win and help ASU earn the series victory in Sunday's decisive game three against the Hilltoppers.
Lee held the opponent, who came into the series averaging 9.5 runs per game, to a single run in the Sunday finale. The Jonesboro, Ark. native surrendered just five hits, all singles, along the way. After giving up three hits and walking in a run in the first three innings, Lee settled in and retired the next 12 batters he faced to put the Red Wolves in position to earn the win.
