Miami’s Javi Salas tosses perfect game against Villanova (Video)
We’re still a few weeks away from games that matter in the Major League Baseball standings, but the college season is in full swing.
On Tuesday, the No. 16 Miami Hurricanes played host to the Villanova Wildcats in Coral Gables. Those who were on hand at Alex Rodriguez Park got an up close look at the 20th perfect game in NCAA Division I baseball history.
Miami’s Javi Salas struck out six batters and needed just 113 pitches to face the minimum 27 batters. He received plenty of run support from the offense as the Canes cruised to a 17-0 victory.
“I don’t even know what to think,” Salas said after the game via Miami’s official site. “In that last inning, I was trying to keep my adrenaline down. The fans were getting up, and I couldn’t believe it. It’s a dream come true.”
The image of the scoreboard after the game is one Javi Salas won’t soon forget.
