Scott Frazier, a 6-foot-7, 215-pound righthander from Upland (Calif.) High pitched a gem in a 17-0 rout against Silverado High (Victorville, Calif.) last night. Frazier allowed no hits in his first start of the season. Only two Silverado hitters reached base—one on a walk and another on an error. He struck out 18. Reports were that he was 91-94 mph with his fastball and a good curveball that he threw for strikes. He will be featured in today's Draft Tracker.
"He pitched well," Upland head coach Mike Alonso said. "He threw a lot of strikes. It's a good starting point for him. Our league will be a lot tougher. He got bigger and stronger over the winter. I'm 6-foot-4 and I could look him in the eye last year."
The pitching coach at Upland is Louie Hernandez, who was the last to throw a no-hitter for the Highlanders. Dave Coggin, a former major leaguer, worked with Frazier some in the winter and has helped Hernandez as well.
Frazier is also a 4.0 student and committed to Pepperdine.
