On Friday the Maroons traveled to Louisville, KY to participate in the PBR Super Prep Series.  Facing Zionsville (IN), Alec hit a game tying two-run home run off Dayton recruit RJ Wagner in the 6th inning.   

Saturday morning, Barger picked up his second save of the week as the Maroons defeated Memorial (NJ) 2-1.  Barger tossed a scoreless seventh inning.

Saturday afternoon Central defeated Columbus North (IN) 7-3. Barger singled twice, stole two bases, scored a run, knocked in a run, and recorded the final 2 outs for his third save of the week.

For the week, he hit two home-runs, collected five RBI, scored three runs and racked up three saves on the mound.

For his efforts, Barger has been named the Porsche Exchange Player of the Week for the week of April 3 – April 9.
