It was a special weekend for Eric Martin. After missing a number of games with an injury, Martin was excellent in his return last weekend, and then on Saturday, the Olney outfielder hit three home runs. The Kitchener, Ont. native is locked in!

The left-handed-hitting slugger was involved in the action offensively for Charleston over the weekend. Sechopoulos picked up a pair of doubles against Elon, driving in two runs. It was a three-hit series overall for the senior who continues to slug in the middle of Charleston’s lineup.
