For the third-straight season, the Truman baseball team won 20 games. The Bulldogs were 20-30 after last year’s run to the Division II World Series.
Junior transfer Nick Agliolo provided the early offensive spark as he hit above .400 for the better part of the first half of the season. Agliolo finished with a team-leading .360 batting average with eight doubles and three triples.
Senior T.J. Wood led the GLVC in stolen bases with 24 and finished his Truman career fourth in steals with 43. As a team, Truman again was near the top of the league in steals with 73 out of 103 attempts. Senior pitcher Mark Roberts wrapped up his Truman career as the all-time leader in innings pitched and tied for first in career starts with 42. Sophomore reliever Peter Young eclipsed both the career and season record for saves. Young had a 3-1 record with eight saves and finished his second season with 14, breaking the previous record by four.
Consistency was the issue with the Bulldogs this year as they had three, three-game winning streaks, and out of the seven GLVC West Division series, won one, lost three and split three with no four-game sweeps by either team. The Bulldogs played a record 31 games at home including 22 straight running from March 4 through April 3.
