Kumar Rocker..........Vandy pitcher

(1/1)

Ghost Writer in the Sty:
Kumar Rocker on the mound right now for Vandy is the son of former Razorback assistant football coach Tracy Rocker, who coached under Nutt.

Pudgepork:
Yeah.  Odd to think of him as a baseball pitcher when his dad was a hugely talented defensive lineman.   Rocker is a very talented pitcher.   I would rather he be in a mlb uniform these days

sickboy:
Dudeís pitching a gem tonight.

SugarHillGaHog:
Duke pitcher with a thumb bleeding.  That's a tough place to get it to stop.

Franchise_Hog:
16 strikeouts and no-hitter thru 8

ASUHog:
Will he come out for the 9th?  Lots of pitches.

Franchise_Hog:
Kid just threw a no-hitter with 19 strikeouts.

porkchopsdontfloat:
Finished the no hitter. 19ks. Unbelievable.

ASUHog:
He did it. Kids a stud. Threw 130 pitches.

He looks like he could play a little football.
But looks like he's got a bright baseball future.

Yep.  It's the best part of watching these games.  You see kids you haven't had a chance to hear about.  It's fun.  Women's track was that way with that sprinter from LSU.  I think she set a college record.  It's just simply fun to forget about your allegiance for a bit and see young people stepping up.

You guys do realize Rocker threw 7 against us in game 2 of our series with Vandy ... He's not unheard of by any means ...

Pigonometry:
Maybe the most dominant pitching performance I have ever seen.

Wow.

I understand.  Some of us can't catch every meet or game.  I personally hadn't heard of him or Sha'Carri Richardson.  I enjoyed watching them.

Exactly.  He was pretty dominant against us too.  Only allowed 4 hits and struck us out 7 times in those 7 innings.  Vandy won that game 12-2.    Itís not going to be fun having to face him for the next two years.

311Hog:
wow so an almost first time ever no hitter and then this kid actually does it

They look like they are going to win it all. I hate to say it.

Funny you didnít post this yesterday when they were getting blown out 18-5

hawg1221:
He pitched well, BUT they should have been less aggressive on their swings.

That wouldnít be bandwaggon then

OS2 (SW) Razor Back:
Impressive.

King Kong:
I was pissed. We need Duke to win. I donít want Vandy in Omaha

Amityvillehogger:
His curveball was electric. Follow that up with 92-95.

Amazing performance.

Loved his reaction to striking their guy out after Dukes HC called the timeout to try to get him out of his rhythm.

you must not have watched friday nights game.. lol

micali:
Maybe he didnt save his best for when it really counts and sucks during the CWS when we face them.

vandybuff:
Good luck today ... and thanks for the kind words re:  Rocker.

Comical overreaction. Vandy is clearly very good as the #2 overall seed, but theyíre in a battle in their own Super.

I am not afraid of Vandy. I want as many SEC team in Omaha as can go. We beat them there. I want to play the best beat the best.

Hogarusa:
Amazing performance by the freshman, a no hitter on a team coming off an 18 run performance. His pitches were nasty. I will be rooting for Duke to rebound and pull off the upset today.

I want to win a National Championship. Who we beat and if they are considered the best means nothing to me

If we only team ranked in the top 6 Iíll feel much better about that

jjdlc:
Didn't he nearly blind Duke's center fielder in the first inning?  Otherwise, a great game.

He did.  Btw I havenít heard an update on that guy

Hogarusa:
His performance even more impressive after seeing the 2 freshmen today in Fayetteville. Thats a lot of pressure for young guys.

I heard today he was back in the dugout before that game finished - he went for tests, CT Scan and it seems everything checked out OK.

Occams Razorback:
Reminded me a bit of Dwight Gooden

Good to  hear, I was watching that, and that was a scary moment for that kid from Duke.

vandybuff:
it was a very frightening moment.  i am very thankful he was not more severely injured.
