ASU's Leake takes no-hitter into 8th vs. Missouri

Right-hander Mike Leake, the pride of Fallbrook High, carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning on Friday against Missouri before the Tigers' Andrew Thigpen doubled to break it up. Leake got three straight outs after that and left after eight innings with a 2-0 lead

Baseball America's John Manuel was at the game on the first day of the DeMarini Invitational and watched Leake win the duel against Missouri's Kyle Gibson. Leake, the Pac-10 Pitcher of the Year last year, is already 2-0 this season. He came into the season with a 24-5 career record, one of only three Sun Devils pitchers to win 20+ games coming into their junior year.

BA ranks Leake No. 22 among its top 100 College Prospects.
