Scott Hurst had quite the weekend.
The 2017 third round pick of the St. Louis Cardinals recorded his second four-hit game in two days, going 8-for-9 over Saturday and Sunday against the Auburn Doubledays. Over the three-game series, Hurst went 10-for-16.
The centerfielder is putting together a nice season in the New York-Penn League, while playing for the State College Spikes. As of Sunday night and through 40 games, Hurst is hitting a nice .309 with 3 home runs, 16 RBI and 28 runs. He became only the second player in the history of the State College Spikes to get 8-hits over a two-game span.

Hurst has seemed to have found his rhythm after a slow start to his pro-career. He and the Spikes resume action tomorrow against the West Virginia Black Bears, so let’s hope he can keep this hot streak going.
