Columbus State's Lewis, Pullen named all-region

Columbus State University baseball players Ryan Lewis of Brookwood and J.D. Pullen of Providence were named to the Daktronics and J.D. Pullen made the second team.

Lewis is hitting .387 with six home runs and 42 RBIs as a senior. He is currently leading the nation with 73 runs scored, which is also the second most all-time in a single season by a Cougar. His 84 hits are the fourth most in the country.

The outfielder also added 10 doubles and was 25-for-33 in stolen bases attempts. He led the team with a .457 on-base percentage. For his efforts, he was named to the All-Peach Belt Conference first team.

Pullen, a second-team outfield selection after having a great senior season for Columbus State, has a .385 batting average, the fourth-best mark in the PBC. He also ranked in the top 15 in the conference with a .450 on-base percentage.

The lefty's 80 hits are good enough for the ninth-most in the nation and he is also sixth in the country in runs with 64. On the base paths, he is 20-for-23 in stolen base attempts. Like Lewis, Pullen earned first team All-PBC honors last week.
