Peter Strzelecki tosses another gem for USF

USF right-hander Peter Strzelecki tossed the Bulls' first nine-inning complete game in 14 months Saturday at Connecticut.

Suddenly, the USF baseball team's most inspirational player has become its most dominant one.

Since his father's funeral two Sunday ago, right-hander Peter Strzelecki has posted the Bulls' two best starting pitching efforts of 2017. The latest occurred Saturday in Storrs, Conn., where the junior recorded the team's first nine-inning complete game in nearly 14 months in a 2-0 victory against Connecticut.

"Pete had pinpoint control with all his pitches today," Bulls coach Mark Kingston said.

"Fastball was 89-90 (mph), and his slider and changeup really kept them off balance. He keeps getting better and better as the year goes on."

Strzelecki's effort came a day after the Bulls (39-12, 13-8) dropped both games of a double header against UConn (28-21, 12-9). In a best-case scenario, USF will exit the weekend with a one-game lead in the American Athletic Conference standings. At worst, it will be a game out of first.

Here are Strzelecki's totals in his last two starts:

IP
-17.1
Hits
-5
Earned runs
-1
Walks
-2
Strikeouts
-18
ERA
-0.49
