Transcript The Coogs' King of K's One look at UH pitcher Eric Rasberry's gaudy statistics and it was easy to lump him with such high-velocity pitchers as Nolan Ryan or Bobby Witt. He admitted to throwing some "junk" pitches, curves and sliders, in order to punch hitters out, not unlike Houston Astros pitcher Bob Knepper. Still, the junk carried him to masterful heights. On his first outing of the year, the left-hander pitched a masterful five-inning no-hitter against Texas- Arlington, only the fifth in UH history. That earned him a National Player of the Week citation from Baseball America and a bit of local notoriety. 246 ■ Sports Outfielder Mark Cerny (29) powers a hit for an RBI. Photo by Robert Denton.

He responded with two good outings before nationally-ranked Southern Cal roughed him up. "It was just a couple of bad pitches or we'd still be in the ball game," he grimaced about the 8-2 loss to the nationally-ranked Trojans. He owned a 3.80 ERA, a 9-4 record and 60 strikouts. Less happily, he also gave up 59 walks and 58 hits. Last year, he led the Coogs with 76 strikeouts in 70 innings pitched. The Cougars were 43-14 on the season, one of the best records in the Southwest Conference. With Rasberry and Keith Darter (7-3, 3.86 ERA), the Cougars had two of the best starters in the SWC. But to contend for the con ference post-season tournament, Rasberry knew that he had to cut down on the number of baserun- ners he allowed. "I'm walking too many people," he agreed, but his pitching style posed problems for any pos sible correction. Rasberry likec to paint the corners with his pitches, and "you won't throw or the corners and not get a lot of balls called," he said. "We've got a lot of good hitters giving me a lead in every game,' Rasberry said, " and if the pitchers come through, I really believe we can win the conference." The King of K's has spoken. ► Scott Butterworth An outfielder miscalculates his dive as the baseball lands near his side. Photo by Robert Denton.
