MaVorhis Tosses Two-Hitter in 10-0 K-State Win

Updated:
PRESS RELEASE K-STATE:

K-State starting pitcher Levi MaVorhis tossed a two-hit shutout on Friday, helping the K-State baseball team to a 10-0 win over Northern Colorado at Tointon Family Stadium.


MaVorhis carried a perfect game into the seventh inning before he surrendered a leadoff single into right field by Jake Ekman for the Bears’ first hit. The right-hander allowed a bunt single with two outs in the eighth, but he went on to face just one over the minimum 27 batters. MaVorhis struck out eight, matching his career-high, and used 85 pitches in his first career complete game.

I felt locked in,” said MaVorhis. “As a player you go out and try and stay locked in every game, but thankfully today I had it going a little bit. Everybody was making plays, so thank you to the position players. “

The two-hitter was the first for K-State (9-7) since Chase Mitchell on April 29, 2005 against Kansas.

Friday’s win extended the Wildcats’ winning streak to eight games, their longest since setting the program record with a 16-game winning streak in 2006. It was also the first shutout by K-State since March 22, 2013 vs. Bethune-Cookman (12-0).

“Solid game all around; great pitching by Levi [MaVorhis] on the mound,” said K-State head coach Brad Hill. “It was a complete game shutout, and those do not happen too often around here. He had great command and attacked the zone; 85 pitches in nine innings is pretty outstanding.”

With MaVorhis stifling the Northern Colorado (5-14) bats, the K-State offense fired on all cylinders. The Wildcats used 14 hits to help drive in their 10 runs. Every starting position player for the Wildcats had at least one hit.

Austin Fisher led K-State with three hits, including a two-run home run in the second inning that made it 6-0. Fisher also had a game-high four RBI after he drove in a run with a single in the three-run first inning and a sacrifice fly in a two-run eighth to go along with second home run of the season.

Shane Conlon and Tanner DeVinny joined Fisher as the three Wildcats with multiple hits. Conlon went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored while DeVinny went 2-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored. The freshman DeVinny drove in both of his runs with a single in the first inning.

In the sixth, DeVinny ignited a two-run frame with a leadoff single to center field. He was later plated by Clayton Dalrymple’s single to right. Carter Yagi went on to drive in Alex Bee with a sacrifice fly later in the sixth.

Yagi started a two-run eighth with a one-out single and advanced to third on a two-base error by Northern Colorado center fielder Jensen Park. Ross Kivett drove in Yagi with a double while Kivett scored on Fisher’s sacrifice fly to right field.

Northern Colorado’s Connor Leedholm suffered the loss after the right-hander allowed eight runs on nine hits and three walks in five innings pitched.

K-State and Northern Colorado wrap up the three-game series with a doubleheader on Saturday, March 15. The first game starts at 2 pm, and the second game will start approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first.
