Tuesday was a great day for college baseball. Here’s a quick look at some of the highlights:
• Sophomore righthander Scott Swinson threw the sixth no-hitter in Maryland history in a 4-0 win against Delaware. It was the first solo no-hitter by a Terrapin since 1992, and it helped UM reach the 30-win mark for just the second time in school history. Swinson struck out a career-high 10 batters while walking two. The Terps finish the season 30-26.
• Louisiana State snatched the nation’s longest winning streak away from New Orleans in grand fashion. The Privateers had won 13 in a row heading into last night’s game against LSU at Zephyr Field, LSU’s Sean Ochinko delivered an RBI single in the 15th inning to secure a 7-6 win in one of the longest games in Tigers history. LSU now owns the nation’s longest winning streak at 13 games.
"It was a game for the ages," LSU coach Paul Mainieri told the Baton Rouge Advocate. "I’m at a loss for words, really."
• Ohio State overcame an 11-0 deficit to beat Buffalo 14-13. Catcher/first baseman Justin Miller’s three-run homer in the eighth brought the Buckeyes within three at 13-10, and his two-run single in the bottom of the ninth tied the score, before OSU plated the winning run on an error.
• Georgia finally beat rival Georgia Tech for the first time in three tries this season. The Bulldogs squeaked out a 3-2 win in front of 22,599 fans at Turner Field, the second-largest crowd in series history.
• Finally, there was a great scene at Clemson prior to the Tigers’ game against College of Charleston, as 13-year-old Mary-Louise Pawlowski (the daughter of Cougars coach John Pawlowski) was honored by the Tigers. Clemson presented Mary-Louise with a check for $15,000 to help pay for her medical expenses as she battles a rare form of cancer.
"It’s hard to describe what coach Leggett and the Clemson family has done for our family," John Pawlowski told the (Charleston, S.C.) Post and Courier. "It’s heartfelt and very meaningful, special.
"This certainly goes beyond the wins and losses, beyond the playing field. I can’t thank the Clemson family enough for what they did tonight and what they’ve done for us."
Clemson won the game 12-6.
