Anchorage’s Adam Manzer hit his third home run of the season and set a career-high with 3 RBIs for Sonoma State University in California.

He collected all his RBIs on one swing, a three-run shot in the third inning against Cal State Monterey Bay in NCAA D2 action.

The junior outfielder finished 2-for-4 to raise his batting average to .289 in 24 games. This is his first season with Sonoma State.

Manzer, of West High fame, has driven in 11 runs this season, which ranks second among players with fewer than 100 at-bats.

He missed nearly half the season after suffering two hamstring injuries.

Manzer’s 3 home runs is second Alaska college sluggers. Tyler Thompson of NCAA D3 Pacific Lutheran University and Aaron Miller of NAIA Mayville State each have hit 4 bombs this year.
