Savite scored six times and drove in another eight runs to become the second player in school history to reach 150 career RBIs, now with 151. He drew three walks and was hit by a pitch for a .632 on-base percentage while adding one stolen base. Savite made 25 putouts at his first base position to raise he school record to 1,303 and he added two assists last week. Savite became the first player in school history to reach 600 career at-bats on Sunday, now with 604.
