Friday is the most important day of the week for College Baseball. It’s when a team kicks off a three game series, and it’s also the night when we get to see how a team’s #1 starter fairs on the mound. This weekend starts league play for many of the top conferences around the nation. Here’s how some of college baseball’s top arms performed last night.
Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC)
Danny Hultzen – LHP – UVA. 8IP 3H 1ER 1BB 12K. Strong member of deep college pitcher draft class of 2011.
Deck McGuire – RHP – GT. 8IP 7H 2ER 3BB 6K. Took a tough loss at Maryland.
Matt Harvey – RHP – UNC. 7IP 2H 0ER 4BB 11K. Strong start in conference play v. FSU. Took a no decision.
Casey Harman – LHP – CLEM. 7.1IP 1H 0ER 3BB 4K.
Chris Hernandez – LHP – MIA. 9IP 2H 1ER 1BB 6K. Looking more like the 08 version than the 09 version.
Southeastern Conference (SEC)
Sonny Gray – RHP – VANDY. 5.2IP 5H 1ER 4BB 4K. 2 unearned runs didn’t help cause in loss to Alabama.
Drew Pomeranz -LHP – MISS. 6IP 1H 0ER 2BB 9K. Possible top D1 talent in 2010 with LSU’s Anthony Ranaudo still injured.
Austin Ross – RHP – LSU. 6IP 8H 4ER 1BB 8K. Thrust into the Friday role with Ranaudo’s injury.
Mike Bolsinger – RHP – ARK. 7IP 4H 2ER 3BB 4K. Senior leads Arkansas to big win over LSU.
Bryan Morgado – LHP – TEN. 7IP 3H 2ER 4BB 2K. 2009 White Sox draftee. 3rd round.
Big 12 Conference
Taylor Jungmann – RHP – TEX. 7.1IP 7H 5ER 2BB 8K. I expected a better performance v. Nebraska following his 17Ks last week.
Chance Ruffin – RHP – TEX. 1.2IP 0H 0ER 0BB 2K. Bruce’s son vultures another win in relief. Moves to 3-1.
Nick Tepesch – RHP – MIZZOU. 6IP 3H 0ER 3BB 8K.
Tyler Lyons – LHP – OK ST. 8IP 7H 2ER 1BB 7K.

Atlantic Sun Conference
Chris Sale – LHP – FGC. 8IP 7H 1ER 0BB 14K. Possible top 10 pick from Florida Gulf Coast. Love LHP with good change ups.
Daniel Bibona – LHP – IRVINE. 8IP 4H 1ER 2BB 10K. Senior and returning 16th round pick making his case in 2010.
Matt Purke – LHP – TCU. 7IP 3H 1ER 0BB 8K. 14th overall pick in the 09 draft may go higher in 2011 as a draft eligible sophomore.
