The weather finally seems to be warming up and at the same time prep baseball action is heating up in Colorado in Class 3A, 2A and 1A. Another week of games are on the docket and here’s a quick Player Prop and some games to watch coming up.

Player Props: Logan Wilson, Sr., Ellicott – The Thunderhawks are off to a quick 7-1 start and one of the reasons why has been the play of Wilson. He has been money this season offensively. He’s batting .769 with 20 hits in 26 at-bats. Wilson also has knocked in 25 runs and has swatted five home runs. On Tuesday, he was 2-for-3 with four RBIs in Ellicott’s 10-0 win over Crowley County (4-5). On the mound, he threw a complete game against Crowley – five innings in this case – striking out 12 batters and walking just one. He has a 4-0 record with an ERA under 1. Wilson will try to keep his team on the winning track and better his impressive stats when the Thunderhawks host Dolores Huerta at 4 p.m., Thursday.

Class 3A

Sterling (8-1) at University (6-1), 4 p.m., Wednesday

This is a good mid-week battle against two top teams in 3A. Sterling is coming off a 13-3 win over Strasburg on April 4. The Tigers only loss was 6-1 to a talented 4A team in Pueblo East on March 30.
