Baseball player of the week (3/28): Hurst Bell's Hunter Lockwood

What he did: Lockwood had two hits in each of Bell’s three wins, going 2-for-3 in Saturday’s 14-13 win over Richland. He hit his area-leading 12th home run in the first, walked with the bases loaded, hit a two-run double and drove in the game-tying run with a sacrifice fly in the seventh — his sixth RBI. Lockwood is batting .486 with 33 RBIs.

Who is he? A 5-11, 185 senior catcher and Oklahoma signee

The stats: For the week, 6-for-11, with a home run, four doubles, nine RBIs

He said it: “Coach said that I was pulling everything, so I should stay with a right-center approach at the plate. It’s been paying off.”

Coach said it: “This week is kind of indicative of what he’s been doing for the last two years.” — Paul Gibson.

Did you know? Bell aims for at least 14 quality at-bats each game after the team saw a sign with that mantra at The Ballpark in Arlington.
