COLLEGE ROUNDUP : Davis Gives Master’s Rare Shutout

Freshman right-hander Adam Davis gave The Master’s College its first shutout in 53 games in a 3-0 victory over Biola in an NA1A District 3 game at Biola on Friday.

Davis (3-1) allowed two hits, struck out six and walked one to record The Master’s first shutout since March 18, 1989.

The Master’s (15-14, 5-6) needed Davis’ stellar performance to beat Tim Worrell (3-7), the younger brother of St. Louis Cardinal pitcher Todd Worrell.

Biola’s senior right-hander struck out 12, walked only two and allowed five hits.


The Master’s scored its first run in the top of the fifth inning. Jeff Preston led off with a double, the only extra-base hit of the game, went to third on a wild pitch and scored on another wild pitch.

Craig Johnson was two for four with a run batted in for Master’s.
