PBR Team & Prospect Watch: Battle Creek Lakeview vs Comstock Colts

The Battle Creek Lakeview Spartans, contenders in the SMAC conference, continued to build momentum this past Saturday with two wins over Comstock.  Lakeview is in the process of reloading as they prove to be lead by a young group of potential top prospects.  Junior shortstop Brennan Kerr, junior left handed pitcher Chet Josyln, sophomore infielder Jake Bivens, and sophomore infielder Riley Davis lead the charge for the Spartans.  Veteran right hand pitcher Brandon Zelichowski, who is committed to Owens CC, captains the pitching staff for Lakeview.  

Lakeview proved to be the better team in the first game by holding onto a 4-2 lead.  Leadoff hitter Jake Bivens showed a strong bat and demonstrated plus speed from the left side with a bunt for a hit, a double, a stolen base, and a run scored.  Biven's classmate, sophomore Riley Davis, the Spartan's 3-hole hitter, displayed quick hands from the right side and will continue to grow as he has more at bats.  

Look for the Lakeview Spartans to do some damage in the state tournament this year if they can stay healthy.
