Miami's Javi Salas throws perfect game

Posted: Updated:

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Miami senior Javi Salas pitched a perfect game on Tuesday night against Villanova, the second in school history.

Salas, who was drafted in the 38th round by Minnesota last year, faced only four three-ball counts. The last of those was a full-count offering to Max Beermann with one out in the eighth, Salas setting him down swinging.

Left fielder Sebastian Diaz made a diving catch for the third out in the eighth, robbing Donovan May. And in the ninth, Salas finished it off in style, striking out Derrick May Jr. swinging to end the night.

Salas (1-1) entered the game with an 11-11 career record. He struck out six, and induced 11 fly ball outs and 10 more off of grounders, throwing 113 pitches.

The Hurricanes won 17-0.
