Monday was a banner day for Central Florida. Not only did the Golden Knights improve to 17-1 with a 6-0 win against Wagner, but they delivered coach Jay Bergman’s 1,200th career victory with a combined no-hitter. Sophomore lefthander Mitch Houck did most of the heavy lifting, striking out a career-high 13 and walking four over the first seven innings of work before handing off to sophomore righty Austin Hudson, who struck out five over the final two innings.
"I was mixing the curveball and slider in there a lot tonight," Houck said in a release. "It was just one of those things that they never got around to seeing it out of my hand, so it was just devastating them tonight. It was definitely the greatest thing that has ever happened in my college career."
Tuesday, meanwhile, features a terrific slate of games, though we’ve already seen a number of postponements thanks to storms across the Midwest. Most eyes will be on the showdown between No. 1 Arizona State and No. 2 Arizona in Tempe. The Wildcats will start junior righthander Mike Colla, while Arizona State plans to use a number of pitchers, with junior righty Stephen Sauer getting the start. It appears ASU will save junior lefthander Josh Satow for this weekend’s Bob Schaeffer Memorial Tournament, which will test the Sun Devils with five games over four days. Satow last pitched last Wednesday against Arkansas and would have seemed a logical choice for today, then maybe again Sunday against UC Irvine, but Devils coach Pat Murphy has indicated Sauer is the more likely choice.
