Against Arizona State, he hit his fifth home run of the season to tie the game in the ninth inning. With a runner on and trailing by two runs, he jumped on the first pitch hitting it out dead center to tie the game at six.
With Northern Colorado in town, Rowan hit another deep shot to center field for his team-leading sixth home run of the season.
Against Dixie State earlier in the season, he knocked two home runs and had four RBI. With his three runs scored, he had a hand in seven of the team's 16 runs against the Trailblazers.
