Brandon Murray doesn’t head to the mound thinking he has to strike everyone out.

The Hobart pitcher says he isn’t trying to blow anybody away.

But try telling that to the opposition.

Murray has used a blazing fastball and a devastating slider to climb his way to the top of the Brickies’ record book.

Last season, the right-hander set a single-season school record with 105 strikeouts.

Tuesday, Murray became the school’s career strikeouts leader.

“That also means I’m getting my job done on the mound,” Murray said of approaching the mark. “Obviously getting strikeouts, getting outs, it looks cool in the books, but it also means I’m getting my job done on the mound, getting outs and helping us win games.

“My main goal is to get everybody out.”

Murray set the career mark in impressive fashion Tuesday at Lowell. He needed 12 strikeouts to pass Dan Zanolla. Murray finished with 12 strikeouts in the 7-1 victory.

“It’s a luxury that we are extremely fortunate to have, a guy with that kind of natural ability,” Hobart coach Bob Glover Jr. said. “The strikeout numbers are just staggering.

“When you begin with a guy like that, that’s going to put a real limit on the number of balls that the other team is going to put into play, that is a great starting point for your defense in terms of being able to keep the other team off the boards. If they can’t put the ball in play consistently, it makes it all that much more difficult for them to score.”

Murray finished strong, striking out eight of the final nine batters of the game. After Tuesday’s game, he had 220 career strikeouts.

“He’s very talented,” Lowell coach Bobby Wong said. “Throws the ball well, hard. He was right around the plate. When you throw that hard and you have a decent off-speed pitch, it’s tough to hit off a guy like that. He’s very good.”

Pitching was just part of the South Carolina recruit’s record-breaking week.

Monday, Murray established a school mark for doubles in a season. He hit his 14th of the year, breaking former major leaguer Larry Bigbie’s mark.

“To see that he played in the major leagues and to break one of his records, that’s pretty cool,” Murray said.

Murray has a .419 batting average.

“He’s been fantastic (at the plate),” Glover said. “You can argue he’s been just as valuable, or more valuable, at the plate than he has been on the mound at this point. That’s been really fun to watch.”

Glover hit .298 with eight extra-base hits and 21 RBI last season. He’s already surpassed the extra-base total (14 doubles, two triples) and has 20 RBI this year.

“Last year, my hitting started to come around a little more toward the end of the season and in the summer,” Murray said. “This year, I’ve had to step up and fill a big spot offensively. I’ve just tried to go up there, stay relaxed, have some self-discipline at the plate and try to make the big impact and help my team and get my job done.”

On the mound, Murray is 3-1 with a 3.03 ERA. He has 65 strikeouts.

“There’s no question when he’s got his A game, people just can’t do a lot (against) him when he’s right,” Glover said.

A right Murray has been able to write his name in the record books.

“It feels pretty good, considering it’s only my junior season,” Murray said. “I’ll have my whole senior season to try to set the mark higher.”
