Tulane's Hunt makes a name

When your first name is Shooter -- well make that a nickname -- it's hard to live up to the cliche about making a name for yourself.

So, in that respect, give Tulane right-hander Shooter Hunt credit.

The last two Fridays, Hunt, a pretty strong draft prospect in his own right, has drawn the assignment of facing two of the nation's top pitchers.

Hunt took a no-decision last week in a 4-2 loss to Pepperdine and Waves ace Brett Hunter.

Hunt then outdid himself Friday night.

Facing Seth Gorgen, the hero of UC Irvine's memorable CWS run a year ago, Hunt tossed seven shutout innings, beating Gorgen and the Anteaters 2-0.

It's still early, but right now, Hunt has what one publication likes to call "helium" when it comes to June's draft.
