Kinkade is no stranger to summer league ball. After finishing an up-and-down sophomore season at CSU Bakersfield, Kincade earned a spot with the Pulaski River Turtles of the Appalachian League. Once summer ball started, the former two-sport star at Pullman (Washington) High School hit the ground running. In 44 games played for Pulaski, Kinkade hit .278 with nine extra-base hits and 29 RBIs. He also had more walks (26) than strikeouts (21). The Pullman native is entering his first season at the University of New Mexico, and so far, he has adjusted nicely. In his seven plate appearances for the Lobos, Kinkade is batting .571 with two doubles. Kinkade hasn’t played in his home state much at all since high school, so for him, playing in Yakima is a gratifying experience. “It means a lot coming back to my home state to play,” Kincade said. “Over the last few years, I’ve traveled all over the country so it’s going to be really special to have my family at most of my games.”
