Matt Rose: Week Eight Turks POW

Matt Rose:  Week Eight Turks POW
If Matt Rose (Georgia State) isn’t doing damage one night, he surely is doing damage the next night. Rose continues to absolutely hammer the ball and put up astronomical offensive numbers on a consistent basis as well as some pretty slick defense at the third base bag.This past week, Rose hit .478 with one home run, seven runs batted in and seven walks. The hits and walks were good enough for an unprecedented .613 OBP for the week. His season batting average is now .342 and season RBI total is 29 which are good enough for 6th and 7th in the Valley League, respectively.The Turks will need to continue to ride the GSU Panther’s back to have a successful run in the playoffs and complete the championship sweep of regular season and postseason. Congrats Matt on multiple Player of the Week nods!
