He hit .400 (28-for-70) with four home runs, 13 RBI and scored 14 runs during April. Almost a third of Bolinger's hits went for extra bases, as he smacked four doubles and a triple in addition to his four home runs. He also recorded 44 putouts, two assists and committed no errors in the outfield for a perfect 1.000 fielding percentage...

In the NCAA statistical rankings, Bolinger's 77 base hits ranks 11th-best and his .399 batting average is the 16th-highest in the country. He's slugged for a team-best .637 percentage with a .453 on-base percentage. He also leads the ballclub in doubles (12), home runs (10) and RBI (39).

The Bulldogs will welcome 19th-ranked Arizona State University to the Patterson Baseball Complex and Washington Trust Field for a three-game non-conference series over Commencement Weekend. The series begins Friday at 6 p.m.
