Greene was 10-for-16 (.625) with a homer, two doubles, six RBIs, and five steals in five attempts while not committing an error in 26 chances. He also walked seven times and did not strike out. He did so while playing four games against teams ranked in the top five in the nation. Against #3 Wake Forest, he was 7-for-10 with four steals in leading the Tigers to two wins in three games.
