The first weekend of the college baseball season in the books, and plenty of impressive showings have been turned in around the country. One of the best pitching performances belongs to Loyola Marymount’s Trevor Megill, who’s slated to play for Orleans this summer.
Megill, a WCC all-freshman performer last year, he didn’t disappoint in his 2013 debut. Facing Utah on Saturday, Megill tossed seven innings of two-hit, shutout baseball in a 1-0 win. He struck out 11 while walking just two.
Megill checks in at 6’8, 235 pounds. Out of high school, he was ranked 76th in his class and he enrolled early at Loyola Marymount. As a freshman last year, he went 5-8 with a 3.57 ERA while leading the Lions in strikeouts. He finished the year with a K/9 rate of 8.14.
If Saturday is any indication, Megill may be well on his way to even bigger things this season.
