Cross Creek’s Hollie is player of the week

HIGHLIGHTS: Over his past five games, Hollie has dominated opposing pitchers to the tune of 13 hits in 19 at-bats, including four doubles, four home runs and 20 RBI. He also threw seven innings of one-run ball against Washington County on Monday. Hollie is hitting .506 with 10 home runs and 43 RBI in 25 games as the second half of a lethal duo with Luis Campusano. He also has a 1.66 ERA in 14 appearances.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING: “He’s been doing it against good pitching, too. Everything he’s hit, he’s hit hard. Everyone last year said they were going to pitch around Luis. They have to pitch to Luis. (Hollie’s) ceiling is high.” – Cross Creek coach Tavis Cummings

WHAT HE SAID: “I know they depend on me and Luis to come through in tight situations. We have to get the hit, the RBI. It’s not a lot of pressure, but we know it’s on our shoulders. I’m doing better than last year, for sure. I feel like I’m picking it up and finding a groove this season.”
