The junior had multiple hits in three of the four games, starting with a 2-for-5 outing with three RBIs against West Georgia. He then hit .429 in a three-game series at Augusta State, driving in four runs in each of the first two games. 

He doubled twice in the opener, then hit a three-run home run in game two. Maas drove in another run in the series finale, giving him at least one RBI in all four games. He also scored five times and had a .789 slugging percentage. Maas is third in the PBC in home runs and RBI.
