In seven games, James drove in 12 runs and hit .588 (10-for-17) with two doubles and four home runs. James also scored nine runs, walked five times and stole two bases.
James, who has signed with the University of Arkansas next year, now has 11 home runs and 40 RBI on the season while hitting .418.
