Embry Emerges Flames catcher Jonathan Embry has had quite a start to his 2018 season. The redshirt sophomore has hit .615, collecting eight hits in 13 at bats, and sports an on base percentage of .722. Starting at catcher for the first time in his collegiate career, the Louisville, Ky. native, who only had 28 at bats in 2017, belted the first home run of his career in his first at bat of the year, last Friday. His two-run home run in the first inning staked the Flames to a 2-0 lead en route to a 5-4 victory on opening day. Embry has collected back-to-back three hit games entering Friday's contest with Binghamton. The catcher had the first three-hit contest of his career in Sunday's 4-2 win over VCU in the second game of a doubleheader. On Tuesday, he went 3-for-3 in Liberty's 4-1 victory over James Madison. Walk This Way After Liberty finished its year second in the nation in bases on balls in 2017 and leading the Big South with 341, the Flames picked up where they left off, last weekend. Liberty walked 29 times during its three-game series with VCU. The Flames walked 12 times each in both games of their doubleheader on Sunday.
