Posted by Van Williams, ALB Media Director | Mar 31, 2015

Scooter Bynum of Fairbanks has settled into a nice groove for the Arizona Western College baseball team after moving to the middle of the lineup.

The speedy outfielder is hitting .429 with 16 RBIs over his last 13 games to help his team go 12-1 during that stretch.

With eight multi-hit games this month, Bynum lifted his season batting average to .325 in 36 games.

He had a career-high 4 RBIs in an 8-3 win over Mesa Community College last week.

The freshman sports a .448 on-base percentage, which is the third highest on Arizona Western.

Last year's Alaska player of the year has 23 RBIs, 26 runs and a team-high 8 stolen bases this season.
