University of Miami right-hander Javi Salas twirled a perfect game against Villanova at home on Tuesday night. It was the second perfect game in school history.

As the AP notes, Salas, a senior for the 16th-ranked Hurricanes, struck out six, recorded 10 ground-outs and ran up just four three-ball counts all night en route to a 17-0 win. With two outs in the eighth, Salas almost lost his perfecto, but left fielder Sebastian Diaz preserved it with a diving snare.

Here's how "The U" broke the news on Twitter ...

Salas, a native of Coral Gables, where the University is located, was the Twins' 38th-round choice in the June 2013 draft.
