5 hits in a game is a rare thing, but WDL's Gregg Faustini made it happen today against the NL West. Everything came together at the plate for the 19-year-old center fielder as he collected 5 hits in 6 at-bats -- and led the AL West to a 12-0 win at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick.
"I'm just out there to try and help the team win," Faustini said after the game, "I had some real good at-bats today. I made good, solid contact and luckily no one caught 'em."
Gregg Faustini doubled in the 1st, hit an RBI double in the 2nd, singled in the 4th, doubled in the 5th, singled in the 6th and grounded out in the 8th.
This year Faustini has batted at a .290 pace with 9 hits, 1 home run, 5 RBIs and scored 7 times.
