The junior third baseman from Waco led the Mustangs' record tying power surge at the plate despite falling to Cameron 14-10 in the Friday's quarterfinal round.
Schaefer was a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate driving in four runs on the strength of two home runs as a part of a six-homer barrage for MSU.
The six long balls matched the program's single game record set earlier this season when the Mustangs also connected for six round trippers in a wild 22-17 loss to Southern Arkansas on Feb. 3 in Pensacola, Fla.
Schaefer is hitting .381 with 11 doubles and 11 homers while driving in 48 runs this season.
Angelo State claimed the tournament title with a 5-3 win over West Texas A&M Saturday afternoon at Schaeffer Park in Canyon.
