Have you heard of Vanderbilt's Kumar Rocker? Well, if you hadn't before, you sure will now. The right-handed hurler just threw a no-hitter against Duke, the first ever in the Super Regional round on the road to Omaha for the College Baseball World Series. Here's his 19th, and final strikeout of the evening, capping off a historic performance.

And what a 19th strikeout it was. If his stuff is still breaking that much after 8.2 innings of work, it becomes quite clear why the Duke batters appeared dumbfounded after every pitch. He simply had it all tonight.
It was a career night for the 19-year-old, who had only ever fanned double-digit hitters just once during his tenure at Vanderbilt.
