Metro roundup: ISU’s Manaea No. 2 college baseball prospect

TERRE HAUTE — Junior left-handed pitcher Sean Manaea of Indiana State was ranked second overall among college prospects for the 2013 Major League Baseball draft by Baseball America this week.

Manaea is the only selection from the Missouri Valley Conference and the top-ranked prospect among three total from the state of Indiana. Notre Dame third baseman Eric Jagielo (20th overall) and pitcher Dan Slania (26th overall) are the other selections from the state of Indiana.

Manaea broke onto the national scene during the summer with the Hyannis Harbor Hawks of the Cape Cod League, where he had a 5-1 record and a 1.22 ERA with a record-setting 85 strikeouts in 57 1/3 innings on the mound. In his final five starts he was 5-0 with a 0.26 ERA and 56 strikeouts in 34 innings while allowing just 13 hits and one walk and was named the league’s top pitcher and outstanding pro prospect.

Following his sophomore season on the mound for the Sycamores, Manaea was a second-team all-MVC selection after posting a 5-3 record and a 3.34 ERA over 17 starts. He struck out 115 batters in 105 innings, ranking 13th in the NCAA in strikeouts and sharing third place on ISU’s single-season strikeout list.

ISU opens its 2013 season with four games at Huntsville, Ala., Feb. 15-17.

In the sixth-grade game at Honey Creek, Wilson downed Scott 36-18 as Dexter Shouse and Kenyon Sholty scored 12 each for the winners and K.C. Bender and Terron Thomas six each for Sarah Scott.

Otter Creek posted a pair of wins over visiting West Vigo in the other semifinal games. ZaShawn Suggs scored 18 points and Shelby Sykes 12 in a 47-18 sixth-grade game, Freeman posting 14 of the points for the visitors, and Andrew Morgan had 16 points and Denny Zigler 12 in the seventh-grade game won by Otter Creek 48-19 despite 10 points by Jarrett Myers.
