CWS: Why you have to love Miami's hitters

By Eric Sorenson - June 17, 2006

Dennis Raben is typical of Miami's offense this year. He's young and he's lethal.

Raben just smacked a resounding double to the wall off of Oregon State ace Dallas Buck, scoring two runs to put the Canes up early 2-0. Raben is one of four freshmen in tonight's starting lineup for Miami.

The Hurricane freshmen:
Jemile Weeks, .354-6-40, leadoff batter
Dennis Raben, .286-6-27, five-hole hitter
Yonder Alonso, .296-10-69, leads the team in home runs and RBI
Blake Tekotte, .286-4-30, was leadoff hitter when I saw the Canes at UCLA
