The Storyline
Humber baseball (11-2, 1st OCAA) will conclude its regular-season series with Fanshawe (6-7, 5th OCAA) Oct. 5 at Connorvale Park. First pitch is set for 1 p.m. and will be streamed live on the Hawks Sports Network.

Scouting Fanshawe

  • The Falcons are currently the odd team out of a playoff spot. Only the top four teams make the postseason, and the Falcons will need to finish out the season strong to earn a berth.
  • Offensively, Fanshawe is led by Braden Halford who is hitting .385 with eight RBI.
  • The Falcons walked off Humber at home to begin the season, picking up the 7-6 win in eight innings.
  • Humber is 8-2 all-time against Fanshawe at Connorvale Park during the regular season.

Stacked Aces
Humber's pitching staff features two of the top three leaders in the OCAA in ERA. Braden Taylor enters the weekend with a 3-0 record and 1.56 ERA, while crafty veteran Steven Hough owns a 3-0 record and 1.98 ERA.

Backend Bully
Riley Pollard has been shut down as Humber's closer, recording a league-best five saves this season. The hard-throwing righty has yet to surrender an earned run in six appearances in 2019.

Thievery
The Hawks lead the league with 25 stolen bases. Liam Sutherland, Dennis Dei Baning, and Stephen Narhabeki have combined for 19 in total.

More than Average
Ty Martin's batting average of .462 is the second-best mark in the league and third-best in program history.

What's Next?
Humber baseball will conclude its regular-season matchup with Durham (6-6, 4th OCAA) on Oct. 4 at Connorvale Park. First pitch is set for 7:30 p.m. and will be streamed live on the Hawks Sports Network.
