Buschmann best in May's BCS/RPI race

Right-handed pitcher Matt Buschmann finished first in the Biscuit Crumbs Standings/Rays Player Indicator rankings for May.

Montgomery starter Merrill Kelly was second with 16 points based on the five quality starts he made in the month. He was one point ahead of Bowling Green's Taylor Guerrieri.
