Just one season removed from being the ace of the Seward County Community College pitching staff, Michael Jarman is continuing his successful collegiate baseball career. Jarman, a junior left-handed pitcher at Oral Roberts University struck out 14 batters in the Eagles 4-2 non-conference victory over the Baylor University Bears on Sunday afternoon in Waco, Texas. Jarman (Edmond, Okla.) was the ace of the Saints pitching staff in 2006 where he recorded a 7-3 record on the mound with a 2.79 earned run average and a team-best 94 strikeouts.


Jarman’s 14 strikeout performance breaks the Baylor Ballpark record for most strikeouts in a single-game. The previous record of 12 was posted by Baylor’s Steven White (2003), Baylor’s Mark McCormick (2005) and Nebraska’s Joba Chamberlin (2006). White spent four years in the New York Yankees organization, while McCormick (St. Louis Cardinals) and Chamberlin (New York Yankees) are currently in the minor leagues.


During one stretch of the game on Sunday, Jarman struck out seven of 10 batters faced. In the Oral Roberts victory, Jarman pitched eight innings allowing four hits, two runs, four walks and struck out a career-best 14 batters. Jarman is currently 1-1 with a 3.65 ERA in 12.1 innings pitched. He has a team-high 18 strikeouts this season.
