In the 38-4 series opener, Matusik went 3-5 collecting six RBIs, four of them on a grand slam in the second inning, and scored four runs. On day two, the first baseman went 2-3 in both outings, earning a walk in the first game and scoring a run in game two. Overall Matusik batted .571 in the four games with six RBIs, one home run, four runs scored and three walks
Matusik leads Lynn with a .413 batting average overall. He also leads the Fighting Knights in runs scored (17), hits (33), doubles (eight), RBI (25), slugging percentage (.638) and on-base percentage (.495). His two triples and home runs also tied for first on the team.
