Oct. 23, 2008

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Two formers University of San Diego pitcher, Brian Matusz and Anthony Slama, have been selected to the Arizona Fall League's Rising Star's Showcase game to be played on Friday Oct. 24.

Matusz, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2008 MLB draft by the Balitomore Orioles, led the NCAA in strikeouts (141) and tied for fifth in the country in wins (12) in his final year (2007) with the Toreros. He posted a 1.71 ERA, which is the fourth best all-time mark at USD in single-season ERA. The lefty was named the 2008 West Coast Conference Pitcher of the Year, named a Louisville Slugger, Baseball America and Rivals.com first-team All-American and finished the season as the all-time career leader at San Diego in strikeouts (396). The southpaw also tied the program single-game record for strikeouts with 17 in a win against Harvard on March 22, 2008.

Slama played with the Toreros from 2006-07 and helped lead USD into the NCAA Regionals in both seasons as well as the 2007 West Coast Conference Championship. Below is a link to the Baseball America story. Slama currently is with the Minnesota Twins organization.
