Posted by Van Williams, ALB Media Director | Apr 19, 2016

Adam Manzer of Anchorage hit the go-ahead home run in the eighth inning and finished with three RBIs for Sonoma State before the bullpen gave it away in a 9-7 loss to Cal State San Marcos.

He finished 3-for-4 with a run-scoring walk, an RBI single and a solo home run. It was his first bomb this season and the fifth for his two-year NCAA D2 career.

"The home run felt great. The best feeling I've had all year at the plate," he told me. "Been seeing the ball better as of late been working on some things lately in practice to help me at the plate."

Manzer, of West Post 1 fame, is hitting .282 with 14 RBIs in 32 games.

The senior outfielder has a perfect 1.000 fielding percentage on defense.

"I've been playing a lot of left field and a little right field lately," he said. "Hopefully I can move around a little bit and showcase my skills at other postitions too.

"Of the outfield I like the centerfield the best because I have free range and authority to run down and catch any ball."
