TEAM OF THE DAY: Oregon
The Ducks are playing an outstanding brand of baseball. They made significant statements the last two weekends with series wins over Arizona State and UCLA, Now, they could very well be on their way to a road series win over Stanford. Oregon starting pitcher Alex Keudell struck out seven and allowed just a run on five hits in nine innings, as the Ducks captured a huge 4-2 extra-inning win over the Cardinal. While Keudell put together an outstanding pitching performance, J.J. Altobelli, Brett Thomas and Kyle Garlick each had two hits. Also worth noting, Stanford starting pitcher Mark Appel struck out 13 and allowed just a run on 10 hits in nine innings of work.
PLAYER OF THE DAY: Henry Sisson, lhp, Davidson
The Wildcats certainly haven't had a good season thus far, but the freshman left-handed pitcher gave them something to cheer about Friday in a 1-0 win over Wofford. Sisson tossed a no-hitter in the win over the Terriers. He struck out nine batters and walked just three in the complete game performance. The no-hitter was the first since Davidson's Wes Self tossed one in 2001 against High Point.
UPSET OF THE DAY: Seton Hall over Louisville
The Cardinals hit the road earlier this week and captured a dominant win over in-state rival Kentucky, but took a small step back on Friday with a 3-2 loss to Seton Hall. SHU starting pitcher Jon Prosinski did a tremendous job of keeping the Cardinals in check, allowing just two runs on seven hits in 6 2/3 innings of work. Meanwhile, Louisville starting pitcher Justin Amlung struck out four and allowed three runs on seven hits in six innings of work. UL reliever Dace Kime tossed three scoreless innings, but the Cardinals simply were unable to get much going offensively, finishing the contest with nine runners left on base.
