Touki Toussaint Punches Out 12, Tops at 94

2014 right hander Touki Toussaint started for the Coral Springs Christian Crusaders, just as he did in the 2013 Under Armour All-America Game. He reached 94 with his fastball, and spun his usual tight breaking ball with depth to its downward action. Through 6 innings of work, he punched out 12 and allowed just 1 hit. He issued 5 walks, but stranded each of the baserunners and allowed no runs, and earned the win in a 1-0 victory over Orange Lutheran.

Toussaint’s battery mate was senior Benito Santiago, a Univ. of Tennessee commit. His defensive skills are advanced, he handled Toussaint’s stuff with ease – which is no small task – and kept the pace of the game moving nicely. He has plenty of arm strength, along with a clean release. He collected one of the two Crusader hits on the day (Toussaint had the other).

Senior Jeremiah Muhammed, scheduled to attend Miami Dade CC, recorded the save with a scoreless seventh inning. The 6-foot-4 and 220 pound right hander worked between 85 and 89 with his fastball, struck out one and walked one.

RHP Garrett King Allows Only 2 Hits in CG Gem

Orange Lutheran senior right hander Garrett King, a Univ. of Nebraska commit and 2013 Under Armour Pre-Season All American Tournament participant, threw a complete game gem for the Lancers. He allowed only two hits and issued no free bases, and struck out six over six innings of work. At 6-foot-4 and 175 pounds he has leverage to drive his pitches on a good angle down to the bottom of the zone. A lone earned run was the difference in this pitchers duel between he and Touki Toussaint of Coral Springs Christian. He was efficient and filled up the zone, going right after hitters.
