Sturm presented quiet and low hands in his stance, going 2-for-2 on Sunday with three RBIs and a double in a run-rule victory. Utilized the pull-side multiple times, driving pitches to left field to earn base hits. Sturm was a key contributor in the order, and matched Karlen with those three RBIs on the day, tied for a team-high. Stands at a sturdy 5-foot-10, 172-pound frame, allowing him to generate power through his lower-half at the plate.
