By Robert Hydrick - bio | email

DAYTONA BEACH, FL. (WALB) -  There are hot hitters and then there is a Valdosta State infielder Matt Costello.

Costello went 9-9 in the Blazers wins over St Francis, Indiana and St. Francis, Illinois Tuesday afternoon in Daytona Beach.

Costello has now had 13 hits in 13 consecutive at-bats.

That ties the NCAA DII record and is two short of the NCAA record which was set in Division III.

The DI record is 14 hits in 14 straight at-bats.

Costello will look to extend the hitting streak Wednesday afternoon when Valdosta State plays at Georgia Southwestern. 

Valdosta State beat St. Francis, In.  17-6 and beat St. Francis, Il. 17-8.
