MAY 23

Two-time USA Baseball alum Kevin Gausman put together his strongest outing of the season for the Blue Jays on Thursday, racking up a season-high 10 strikeouts in Toronto’s 9-1 triumph over Detroit. Gausman stymied the Tigers in his 6.0 innings on the mound, allowing just five players to reach base and only one earned run. The Blue Jays’ pitcher was untouchable over the third and fourth innings, fanning all three Detroit batters in the third and adding two more in the fourth as Gausman preserved his side’s lead

2013 Collegiate National Team alumni Matt Chapman helped key a late four-run comeback by the Giants as San Francisco stormed back for a 7-6 win over Pittsburgh. With the Pirates up 6-2 in the eighth inning, Chapman mashed a three RBI, 407-foot home run into center that ignited a five-run Giants frame and helped secure the victory. Chapman ends San Francisco’s three game series against Pittsburgh in scorching form, having homered in all three games while totaling six RBIs on five hits.

2023 Collegiate National Team alum Christian Moore was one of two Tennessee players to tally a 3-for-5 statline at the plate as the No. 1 ranked Volunteers knocked off No. 4 Texas A&M 7-4 to advance to the quarterfinals of the SEC tournament. Moore scored Tennessee’s first run in the bottom of the third inning, rounding the bases after getting aboard via a single to even the score at 1-1. He’d give the Volunteers their first lead of the matchup in the following inning, driving in a run with a groundout to first base as Tennessee took a 2-1 advantage and never trailed the rest of the way.

2022 18U National team alum Jake Brown helped LSU outlast South Carolina in a thrilling 11-10 affair on Thursday, going 3-for-5 with two RBIs and two runs scored as the Tigers advanced to the semifinals of the SEC tournament. Both of Brown’s RBIs came on a vital home run in the fourth inning, part of a four-run stretch to tie the game at 5-5 after reigning national champions had fallen behind early. He played a crucial role in the game-deciding ninth inning, first helping advance the run that would tie the game at 10-10 with a single and then scoring the game-winning run after advancing to third.

MAY 22

2017 18U National Team alum Nolan Gorman continued his hot streak with the Cardinals after going 2-for-2 with a home run and three RBIs in Wednesday’s contest with the Orioles. His two-run, go-ahead shot into the center field stands at Busch Stadium finalized St. Louis' 3-1 win over Baltimore. Over his last 10 games, Gorman has hit four home runs and tallied nine RBIs while sporting a .345 batting average.

While Gorman hit the go-ahead homer against the Orioles, his fellow USA Baseball alum, Lance Lynn, earned a win in the Cardinals’ 3-1 victory in St. Louis while on the mound. Until Gorman did his thing, Lynn kept his cool in a low-scoring pitcher’s duel, dealing five strikeouts in six-innings of scoreless ball. The World Baseball Classic and 2007 Collegiate National Team alumni only gave up two hits in his six frames of work.

2023 Professional Team alum J.T. Realmuto played a key role helping the Phillies pull away from the Rangers for an 11-4 win on Wednesday night, posting a 2-for-5 line at the plate with a home run, three RBIs, and a pair of runs scored. Realmuto’s homer, a 387-footer into left, gave Philadelphia the lead for the first time as it took a 3-2 advantage in the third inning. It also made history for the Phillies as the franchise’s 14,000th home run. Realmuto’s other hit on the night, a single in the sixth inning, drove in a pair of runs to put the Phillies ahead 8-3 as they closed out the win.

2021 18U alum RJ Austin was one of two Vanderbilt players to rack up a game-high three hits in a massive upset of No. 1 ranked Tennessee in the second round of the SEC Tournament, with the No. 8 seeded Commodores stunning the Volunteers by a score of 13-4 in Hoover, Alabama. Austin’s first hit was a single in the third inning, with a home run bringing him in to score one of five Vanderbilt runs in the frame for a 5-1 lead. Austin’s second hit, a double in the fifth inning, advanced another Commodore into position on third to score on a ground out. History repeated itself in the seventh inning, as Austin singled again and would be brought in to score via home run as Vanderbilt went up 9-4.

MAY 21

Two-time USA Baseball alumni Bobby Witt Jr. was electric in Kansas City’s 10-3 win over Detroit, powering the Royals to their fifth straight win with a 3-for-4 performance at the plate that featured two home-runs, six RBIs, three runs scored, and a stolen base. Witt Jr.’s six RBIs tied his career high, and Tuesday’s win was also his first multiple home-run game of the season. The Royals’ shortstop opened the scoring in the bottom of the first inning, recording an RBI single and scoring to make it 2-0. Witt Jr. demolished his first home run of the day in the fifth inning, a career-long 468-foot moonshot for another three Kansas City runs before making it three straight innings with an RBI by adding a sac fly in the third for an 8-0 Royals lead. Witt Jr. capped off the home win by sending another ball over the center field wall in the sixth inning, this time a 425-foot solo blast.

Kyle Tucker clubbed a pair of homers for the second time in three games on Tuesday, helping the Astros earn a 6-5 win over the Angels in extra innings. The two-time USA Baseball alumni’s 16th and 17th home runs of the season, both solo shots, gave him the league lead. Tucker’s 2-for-4 line, complete with two RBIs and three runs scored, began with his first homer in the bottom of the first inning. His second blast, a 407-footer into right, brought Houston level with Los Angeles at 5-5 and proved to be the run that forced extra innings. In the bottom of the 10th inning, it would be Tucker who once again came through for the Astros as he scored the walk-off run.

Minnesota’s Joe Ryan tossed seven scoreless frames in the Twins’ dominant, 10-0 shutout win in Washington, D.C. The 2021 Professional Team alumni only gave up three hits and two free passes while throwing six strikeouts and collecting the win as he led the Twins to a victory on the road.

15U National Team alum Drew Burress made his name known at this year’s ACC Tournament in Charlotte when Georgia Tech took on Florida State in the first round. While the Yellow Jackets lost in a barnburner, Burress did his part to make the contest close. The newly announced ACC freshman of the year racked up three RBIs on three hits, including a solo shot to get his team on the board early in the Queen City.

MAY 20

2017 18U alum Ryan Weathers tossed seven solid innings for the Marlins in their walk-off win in the 10th inning on Monday against the Brewers.

Three-time USA Baseball Alumni Tanner Houck pitched seven scoreless innings in Boston’s shutout victory in Tampa Bay. With his smooth slider in full command, Houck flamed five strikeouts and only gave up two hits while collecting a win as the Red Sox beat their AL East rival 5-0.

Daulton Varsho’s second-inning bomb into right center set the Blue Jays on their way to a 9-3 victory over the White Sox on Monday to open the series between the two sides. With Toronto in an early 1-0 hole, Varsho crushed a two-RBI, 398-footer to give the Blue Jays a lead they would hold for the rest of the game. He’d tally his second hit in the eighth inning, scoring his second run as well as Toronto iced the win.

Washington’s Jesse Winker blasted his second home run in just as many days in the Nationals’ 12-3 blowout win over the Twins. The USA Baseball Alum recorded an RBI on his solo shot and also ripped a double in his 2-for-4 day in D.C. Winker has also recorded an RBI in three straight days.

MAY 19

Two-time USA Baseball alum Kyle Tucker tied for the MLB-lead with 15 home runs as he launched two in Houston’s 9-4 win over the Brewers on Sunday, driving in four RBIs and putting the Astros out of reach. Tucker’s first homer of the day came in the bottom of the sixth inning, a 390-foot shot into right center that gave the Astros a 6-1 lead. Just after the Brewers had cut the advantage down to two runs in the top of the seventh inning, Tucker delivered a clutch three-run blast over the left-field wall in the bottom of the frame to restore his side’s lead to five.

Pro Team alum and the MLB’s RBI, batting average, and OBP leader Alec Bohm added to his All-Star worthy 2024 resume with a monstrous five-RBI day against the Nationals in Philadelphia. Bohm’s only hit of the day was a 403-foot bomb into the left field stands at Citizens Bank Park that scored three, solidified the Phillies’ 11-5 win over the Nats, and furthered the third baseman’s star status this season.

Brent Rooker (2019 Pro) continued his impressive month of May with another solid outing for the Oakland A’s. The former Golden Spikes Award finalist tallied three RBIs and a home run despite his team’s loss in Kansas City. His 2-for-4 day bumped Rooker up to an impressive 19 RBIs in May.

MAY 18

Following a 3-for-4 outing on Friday where he tallied a pair of doubles and scored three times in 10-5 victory for the San Francisco Giants over the Colorado Rockies, 2013 CNT alum Matt Chapman was a perfect 4-4 at the plate as the Giants rolled to a 14-4 victory over the Rockies on Saturday, the only player to tally four hits in the matchup.

2014 CNT alum Walker Buehler collected his first win of the season on Saturday, hurling six shutout innings for the Dodgers and setting the tone for a 4-0 shutout victory over the Reds. Buehler fanned seven batters while allowing just three hits, and went all six innings without giving up a walk to a Cincinnati hitter.

2017 18U alum Nolan Gorman was a key part of the Cardinals’ 7-2 triumph over the Red Sox on Saturday, opening the scoring with his second home run in as many games and helping to seal the result late. Gorman broke the ice in the bottom of the second inning, electrifying the St. Louis crowd with a 372-foot solo shot into right field to give his side the lead. In the bottom of the eighth inning, after Boston had tied the game at 2-2, Gorman stepped to the plate and sparked a five-run half-inning by delivering a huge single to put the Cardinals ahead 3-2. His second RBI proved to be the winning run, as St. Louis would carry the lead the rest of the way.

2016 18U alum Logan Allen continued his strong year for the Guardians on Saturday, improving to 5-2 on the season as he held the Twins scoreless over six innings of action on the mound in an 11-4 home victory for Cleveland. Allen limited Minnesota to just five hits as the Guardians’ offense went to work, being relieved following the sixth inning having struck out seven batters and allowed just six to reach base.

MAY 17

2021 18U alum Gavin Kilen tied for the game-high with two hits in the Louisville Cardinals’ 14-4 win over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Friday, driving in three RBIs and scoring a run on a pair of doubles. Kilen scored his lone run of the day in the fourth inning, reaching home on a sac fly into center field.

MAY 16

2021 Professional alum Jarren Duran led all players in Boston’s loss to Tampa Bay with three hits, all of them for extra bases, and also scored twice in the effort.

Though the Rays would win via a pair of late runs in the ninth inning, Duran was a key part in keying the Red Sox comeback to level the score.

New York Yankees shortstop and three-time U.S. alum Anthony Volpe got his team off to a loud start in Minnesota when he hit a leadoff home run into the left field stands at Target Field.
