Stanford's Brett Mooneyham Strikes Out 13 at Fresno State

Pitching in front of family and friends at Fresno State, Stanford's Brett Mooneyham tied his career-high with 13 strikeouts and took a no-hitter into the sixth inning of the Cardinal's 16-0 rout. The Bulldogs broke up the no-no with a two-out bunt single. Stephen Piscotty went 4-for-5 and was a homer short of the cycle, but the story of the night was Mooneyham. He walked two over seven shutout innings to improve to 3-0 after missing all of last season with a thumb injury.

Through three games, here are the stats for Mark Appel, the projected No. 1 pick in June's MLB amateur draft, and Mooneyham.


W-L ERA IP H R ER K BB AVG.
Brett Mooneyham 3-0 1.71 21.0 10 4 4 28 9 .139
Mark Appel 2-1 3.68 22.0 13 9 9 26 8 .169

If the Cardinal's 1-2 pitchers keep pitching anything like that, Stanford will win at least 2 out of 3 every weekend. While Mooneyham has always had the stuff of a future major leaguer, he has struggled struggled with his command at times. After a strong freshman year, he walked 62 in 87 innings as a sophomore. He's off to a strong start this season with a 28-to-9 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

"I feel like I did pretty good," Mooneyham said after the game. I wonder what Mooneyham's "great" looks like.
