GRITTY GRILLI LEADS BRUINS
Freshman shortstop Robert Grilli has gotten his college career off to a fantastic start. This past week in Henderson Nevada the Salt Lake CC Bruins picked up their ninth victory of the season in extra innings when Robert singled, stole second and eventually came around to score the game winning run. The NJCAA D1 Bruins are ranked 17th in the nation.
Grilli leads the team in hits with 12.
He is hitting .364 with 8 RBI and 6 RS. He has walked 8 times. Congratulations to Robert on his efforts so far.
