College Season Starts

The college season got underway yesterday.  There were a lot of rainouts, especially in southern California where a lot of games were scheduled.  

Brian Matusz got roughed up by Tony Gwynn's SD State squad giving up 8 H and 6 Runs in 4.2 IP.

It was a tough night for a couple of other top college pitchers with Preston Guilmet of Arizona and Mike Stutes of Oregon State allowing 4 runs in 4 IP each.

The star of the evening had to be Lance Lynn, a huge(6'7", 260 lb) RHP from Ole Miss:  5 IP, 2 H,  0 R, 1 BB, 12 K.  

Aaron Crow of Missouri pitched well:  5 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 7 K.

Other notable performances came from:

Danny Farquar, La-Lafayette- 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 9 K.

Tyson Ross, Cal- 5 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 7 K.

Shooter Hunt, Tulane- 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 8 K.

Scott Gorgan, UC Irvine- 6 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K.

The top pitchers seem to be mostly ahead of the hitters at this stage:  Pedro Alvarez- 0 for 2, Yonder Alonso- 0 for 4, and Kyle Russell- 0 for 2 failed to get hits.   Brett Wallace went 1 for 4, BB.  Petey Paramore, AZ State C was probably the hitting star of the night going 2 for 3 with 2 doubles and a BB.

There were several outstanding performances by sophomore pitchers:

Ryan Berry, Rice- 7 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 8 K.

Kendal Volz, Baylor- 8 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 10 K.

Mike Ford, UCSB- 7 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 11 K.

Steve Kalush, Santa Clara- 6.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 13 K.

Nate Garcia, Santa Clara- 7.2 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 7 K.

Steve Strasbrug, SD State- 8 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 7 K.  Strasburg was going against USD and Brian Matusz.  He was featured in BA's "Marquee Matchup" yesterday.  He reportedly has touched triple digits with the heater in the past.
