Texas Tech junior-to-be RHP Trey Masek pitched for the Western Division All-Star team last night in the annual Cape Cod League All-Star Game at Whitehouse Field in Harwich, Mass., as a representative of the Falmouth Commodores.
Masek, who was reportedly throwing 93-94 MPH (fastball) and 80-81 MPH with his slider, needed only eight pitches to retired the side in order during a scoreless frame that included groundouts to shortstop, second base and third base in the fourth inning.
The game ended in a 1-1 tie while Masek’s squad led in base hits with a 9-6 advantage.
Masek has been one of the top pitchers in all of the prestigious Cape Cod League all summer. It marks Masek’s second summer in the league after pitching last year for the Hyannis Harbor Hawks.
In six starts, Masek is 2-3 with a 3.55 ERA in 33 innings with only 32 hits allowed, 13 earned runs allowed and is fifth in the league with 41 strikeouts and has allowed just 12 walks. Masek also ranks among the top pitchers in the league in ERA.
As a sophomore at Tech in 2012, Masek tallied two wins, two saves, 3.40 ERA in 18 appearances (6 starts) with 53 innings, 47 hits allowed, 46 strikeouts and issued 20 walks. Opponents batted just .244 against him.
Masek will return as the Red Raiders most experienced starter in 2013 and will be considered one of the Big 12 Conference’s top Major League Baseball Draft prospect.
Falmouth is currently in second place in the Cape Cod League Western Division with a 16-19 overall record.
