Logan Allen Breaks Hits Record

12

Author: Ryan Graff

Senior Logan Allen swung his way to the top of the Occidental College baseball record books against La Verne in a Saturday doubleheader at Anderson Field, eclipsing Mark Harris’ ‘91 all-time hits record of 184 with a bunt single in game one and tying Mike Kniseley ‘90 and Matt Anderson ‘08 for the career doubles record of 37 with an RBI two-bagger in game two.

Allen’s historical 185th hit came in the bottom of the third inning of game one. The shortstop legged out a bunt to take sole possession atop the all-time hits list. Just one inning later, he struck again at the plate, clanging a two-run homer high off the foul pole in left.

Allen
added even more accolades in the bottom of the fourth of game two, smacking a double
to left center that gave him a three-way share of the all-time Tigers’ record
at 37 two-baggers. Allen completed the day at 4 for 10 with four RBI and two
runs scored and solidified Saturday as a day he will always remember in his
Occidental career.
