U. of Miami's Javi Salas throws perfect game vs. Villanova
Let's dip into the college ranks for some 'perfecto' news.
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.
