Like Sam Dyson on Thursday, Arizona State's Mike Leake certainly helped himself with another late-season gem, tossing a complete-game, 3-hit shutout versus Oregon, striking out 12. Leake did not issue a walk, and only one batter reached second base in the right-hander's first career shutout.

Leake is now 13-1 with a 1.35 ERA in 14 appearances and boasts a 116-18 K/BB ratio in 106 2/3 innings. It was the fifth complete game of the season for the surefire first-round pick.
