If people in baseball circles didn’t already know who Chase Keng is, word got around on March 26.
The UTSA outfielder hit three home runs in one game as the Roadrunners overpowered Rice 16-4 in Houston. On the day, Keng had four hits and five RBIs. That game helped Keng earn national player of the week honors from Collegiate Baseball Newspaper.
Keng’s most recent homer came Friday night at Roadrunner Field in the second game of a Conference USA doubleheader against Southern Miss.
The junior from Deer Park is batting .333 on the season with 11 RBIs in 10 games.
