Zinger Offensive Player of the Day
LONG BEACH, Calif. -- Nicholas Buckner sparked the Texas Rangers to a 6-4 win over the Washington Nationals by doing it all offensively: getting on base (three for four with a pair of singles and a double), knocking in three runs and also swiping a pair of bases.
A six-foot-one, 195 pound senior from Pearland (Texas) Northshore High, Buckner hit .500 in the spring while hitting 10 home runs.
