Postseason Recap: The St. Joseph Mustangs claimed the MINK League championship title after fending off the Ozark Generals in a best-of-three series. Ozark took the first game by coming back from a 5-1 deficit in the bottom of the ninth to tie things up, then won on the back of a Nic Mertes (Rockhurst (Mo.)) single in the 11th inning. The Mustangs rode Jake Van Vacter's (Valley City State (Kan.)) complete-game performance to a 4-1 victory in the second game—evening the series at one game apiece. In the deciding match, Ozark jumped out to a 2-0 lead early on but quickly fell behind when they allowed 13 unanswered runs to St. Joseph—more than enough to secure the Mustangs' first championship since 2015.
1. Trey Harris, OF, Sedalia (Sr., Missouri)
Despite his brief stay, Harris took the MINK League by storm this year, racking up 33 hits in just 19 games to finish the season with a .434 batting average. His 5-foot-10, 219-pound frame gives evaluators pause, but Harris has the ability to wallop almost any ball over the fence. His 12 home runs at Missouri (eighth in the Southeastern Conference) are a testament to that plus raw power. Harris split time between right field and DH roles with Sedalia, and is also capable of manning second and third base because of his above-average arm. He swings with immense strength but is also keenly aware of the strike zone, walking 12 times this summer. Passed over in the draft this June, Harris could wind up being the first senior off the board in 2018 because of his athleticism and power.
