Summer Baseball: Ogrin an All-Star; Greene & Beesley Well Above .300

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — Scott Ogrin is an all-star while Bradlee Beesley and Elijah Greene continue to tear up the Cape Cod League and West Coast League, respectively.

Ogrin (pictured at right) will compete in both the Northwoods League Home Run Derby and All-Star Game on Tuesday night in Kalamazoo, Mich. He is hitting .260 with nine doubles and seven home runs, knocking in 24 runs. The Eau Claire Express second baseman is seventh in the league in home runs and went 3-for-5 against La Crosse on July 3 with a double.

Ogrin was named Northwoods League Player of the Night on June 23 after hitting a three-run home run in a 6-4 win over Rochester. The next day he smashed a two-run shot in a 5-2 win over the Honkers, completing a home-and-away two-game series sweep.

"I'm just keeping it simple, trying not to think too much and use the middle of the field," Ogrin said. "I'm just looking for the fastball and adjusting from there."

Beesley (pictured at center) is hitting .370 in 17 games, which would be third in the Cape Cod League if he had enough plate appearances to qualify. The outfielder has three doubles, two triples and a home run with six RBI. Beesley went 3-for-5 against Bourne on July 9, has six multiple-hit games this season and knocked in the winning run with a single in a 10-inning walk-off 4-3 triumph over Harwich on July 10.

Yarmouth-Dennis is 22-11-4 for the summer, already clinching the Cape Cod League's East Division title.

Greene (pictured at left), who will transfer to Cal Poly from Mt. San Antonio College this fall, owns a .336 average at Yakima Valley in the West Coast League with seven doubles and a triple, knocking in 14 runs with three steals. He had six consecutive multiple-hit games from July 11-19, going 15-for-27 (.556) at the plate with three doubles and six RBI.

Four Mustangs are playing for the San Luis Obispo Blues this summer.

Incoming freshman Conagher Sands is hitting .256 with five doubles and 15 RBI, going 3-for-5 against the Conejo Oaks with one RBI on July 22.

Noah Taylor, another incoming freshman, sports a .237 mark with the Blues, adding three doubles, 10 RBI and three steals, while Jack Kuzma is hitting .146 with seven RBI. Southpaw Thomas Triantos is 1-1 with a 4.96 ERA on the mound, striking out 17 batters in 16 1/3 innings and earning the win July 14 against the Southern California Catch as he allowed one run and one hit over five innings with three walks and five strikeouts.

In addition to Greene, seven other Mustangs are playing in the West Coast League.

At Corvallis, Cole Cabrera is hitting .259 with six doubles, eight RBI and two steals while right-hander Connor Redmond is 0-1 with a 4.58 ERA. He has pitched in six games (three starts), striking out 13 over 17 2/3 innings.

Blake Wagenseller is hitting .200 at Victoria with a double, home run, three stolen bases and three RBI. He hit a solo home run against Kelowna on July 1. Aidan Goicovich has pitched just three innings for Victoria so far.

At Kelowna, southpaw Andrew Alvarez has an 0-1 record and 4.59 ERA with 16 strikeouts over 15 2/3 innings while Zane Lindeman has pitched in four games (7 1/3 innings) with a 1-1 record and 8.21 ERA.

With Greene at Yakima Valley is third baseman Nick DiCarlo, who is hitting .235 with six doubles, one home run, 10 RBI and six steals. He homered against Kelowna on June 24 and produced back-to-back three-hit games June 24 and 26.

Two Mustangs are playing at Waterloo in the Northwoods League. Tate Samuelson is hitting .235 with three doubles and 15 RBI, going 3-for-5 against La Crosse on July 9, while catcher Myles Emmerson has a .215 average with three doubles and seven RBI.

Catcher John Mackay owns a .149 average with four doubles and three RBI for the Peninsula Oilers of the Alaska Baseball League. On the mound, incoming freshman Bryan Woo has a 2-3 record with a 6.43 ERA for the Oilers, striking out 24 over 21 innings. Woo has appeared in six games, all starts.

Incoming freshman pitcher Chase Watkins has helped the Pacific Union Financial Pups to a 16-12 record entering a two-game series Tuesday and Wednesday at the San Luis Obispo Blues.

Incoming freshmen Ryan Jameson, AJ Esperanza and Willie Cano are playing for the Utah Marshalls, an under-18 team based in Kearns, Utah.
