Weekly College Prospect Roundup

Matt Ryerson-US PRESSWIRE

Dan Slania pitched nine innings of relief, Colin Moran had the week off, and Mark Appel bested Trevor Williams and the Sun Devils.

Complete Game Closer

Notre Dame pitcher Dan Slania has been used exclusively in relief throughout his career with the Irish. Entering the weekend, he had thrown 36 innings in 19 appearances in 2013. He entered Friday's contest against South Florida in the 8th inning with a 2-run lead, and was called on to close the door.

Unfortunately, Slania gave up two runs in the top of the ninth, which extended his outing. Head Coach Mik Aoki still had confidence in the big man, though, and allowed him to stay in the game... for nine innings. 140 pitches later, Donnie Hissa took the mound from Slania and pitched three more innings before earning the loss. But Slania has to get credit for throwing a complete game, beginning in the 8th inning. For someone who's never been called on to pitch for so long in one outing, it's a very impressive feat.

Top Pitching Matchups

Stanford's Mark Appel faced off against Arizona State's Trevor Williams, with a host of scouts in attendance. Appel was typically masterful, striking out 13 Sun Devils over 7.2 innings and issuing just one walk. Williams was less masterful, striking out 7 Cardinal batters through 6 innings, allowing 5 runs (all earned) on 9 hits and 3 walks.

Arkansas' Ryne Stanek matched up against Kentucky's Corey Littrell. Stanek struck out 4 through 5-1/3 innings, while Littrell struck out 7 Razorbacks through 8 innings. Oklahoma State's Jason Hursh took on Texas Tech's Trey Masek, with Masek striking out 7 batters through 9 innings and allowing 2 earned runs on 4 hits and 2 walks. Hursh allowed five runs, but just 2 earned, on 7 hits, 4 walks, and 3 strikeouts through 6 innings.
