Seminole State College baseball alum Mike McClendon had perfect pitching in his Major League Baseball debut for the Milwaukee Brewers on Aug. 14.
McClendon took the mound in the sixth inning of a tie game against the Colorado Rockies. He then retired nine batters in a row as the Brewers scored in the 10th inning for a 5-4 win.
McClendon, 25, originally from Arlington, Texas, pitched for Seminole State in the 2005 and 2006 seasons. In 2005, he was named a National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Second Team All-American and the Florida Community College Activities Association's (FCCAA) Pitcher of the Year. He was called up by the Brewers on Aug. 12 when right-hander LaTroy Hawkins was placed on the disabled list with shoulder weakness.
