Summer Baseball: Greene and Beesley Still Above .300; Ogrin Homers

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — Cal Poly junior-to-be outfielder Bradlee Beesley has hit over .400 in his last eight games at Yarmouth-Dennis in the Cape Cod League.

Beesley is 13-for-32 (.406) to lift his overall average to .368, which would be No. 1 in the Cape Cod League if he had enough plate appearances to qualify. Beesley has four doubles, two triples and one home run with 11 multiple-hit games this summer.

Yarmouth-Dennis won the East Division title and is competing in the Cape Cod League playoffs.

Outfielder Elijah Greene, who is transferring to Cal Poly from Mt. San Antonio College, sports a .316 average for Yakima Valley in the West Coast League. He has 49 hits, including 10 doubles and a triple, and has knocked in 15 runs. Yakima Valley has a two-game lead in the second-half North Division standings with three games remaining.

The Eau Claire Express second baseman is ninth in the league in home runs, produced nine multiple-hit games, improved his average 30 points in the last two weeks (13 games) and went 3-for-5 against La Crosse on July 3 with a double.
