Ryan Boldt notched USA an early hit, when the speedster raced down the line after hitting a ground ball towards the hole at first and getting in safe. He was credited with an infield single. He would be retired when Bryson Brigman hit into a fielder's choice. Brigman would get into scoring position with two outs, but Jeremy Martinez's fly ball to center was snagged on the run for the third out, keeping both teams scoreless in the first. usa

Austin Meadows  OF  Grayson HS, Loganville, Ga. Ht.: 6-3. Wt.: 200. B/T: L/L. Meadows is one of the top all-around players in the 2013 class with true five-tool potential. He is a polished lefthanded hitter with power to all fields. He is an above-average runner with excellent instincts. He has a plus arm from the outfield and is verbally committed to Clemson.

RHP Chris Ellis, Ole Miss -- Ellis tallied an impressive 2.84 ERA for the Rebels this past spring, but he looks to have an even bigger role in 2013. This summer, he made eight appearances (seven starts) and had a 4.93 ERA in 38 1/3 innings of work. He also struck out 44 and walked 21. http://www.perfectgame.org/Articles/View.aspx?article=7564  

Elliot Caldwell, of, Butler (So., Spartanburg, S.C., Methodist JC): After playing sparingly as a freshman for Winthrop and hitting just .217/.294/.239 in 46 at-bats, Caldwell turned the Prospect League into his personal playground this summer, impressing more than his fair share of the league's coaches along the way. Caldwell—who will play at Spartanburg Methodist JC next season—used his compact, inside-out swing and good gap power to torch Prospect League pitching to the tune of a .388/.450/.592 line with seven home runs and 47 RBIs. A rock-solid 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds, Caldwell has present strength and physicality with the frame to add more muscle down the road. Coaches were impressed with his ability to control the bat and drive the ball to all fields. He still had a tendency to get caught swinging at pitches he shouldn't, but he should be able to refine his approach as he gets more opportunities to play. Caldwell has above-average speed and excellent instincts on the basepaths, helping him steal 27 bases this summer, and his defensive versatility allowed the Butler coaching staff to play him in the infield and the outfield. But he projects best at a corner outfield spot, where his above-average arm and outfield instincts should allow him to develop into a plus defender. And coaches raved about his makeup and work ethic.

Justin Hlubek  @PGJustinHlubek   Dalton Ewing (2014 OF) continues to impress me. Did I mention he ran a 6.60-60 and threw 93 from the OF
