Scott Matyas is breaking records and settling scores.
The Gophers senior pitcher and team closer Scott Matyas set a Big Ten conference record for career saves earlier this month and has been adding to it. Matyas made Big Ten baseball history on May 7 when he threw one pitch, getting Michigan's Garrett Stephens to ground out to shortstop in an 11-10 Gophers victory. It was Matyas' 33rd save of his career, a conference record he has since increased to 35.
Matyas is one of the key reasons why the Gophers have a record of (21-20,12-9) and are still in contention for a Big Ten title going into the last weekend of the regular season (The gophers are one game back behind Michigan State.)
Matyas who has already been drafted twice, definitely has the potential to be a future player in the MLB, meanwhile in the present we hope he can help us win the big 10 title this year.
