by Jason Booth

It's an interesting time on the college baseball schedule right now as some teams begin to enter conference tournaments and others enter crucial games down the stretch, jockeying for position in the conference standings. 

Some Team Ontario alumni are getting hot down the stretch at the right time for one of the most important months of the college season. A pair of bullpen arms led the way this week as Kyle Perrett and Alex Mackinnon both made two scoreless appearances out of the bullpen.

The entire rundown of top performers this week:


13-for-46 (.283), .393 OBP, 2 HR, 3B, 3 2B, 13 R, 13 RBI, 9 BB, 3 SB
Cabral put together a good week at the dish for the Skylanders throughout his three appearances, reaching base five times. In total, Cabral went 3-for-12 with two walks, three runs scored and three RBI. In those three games, Sussex County's offence racked up 38 runs while picking up two victories.
