Zach Rodgers complete game leads No. 11 UCF to victory against Cincinnati

  Zach Rodgers allowed one run on three hits to earn his fifth win of the season.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Zach Rodgers pitched his second-career complete game and tallied a personal-best 11 strikeouts in No. 6 UCF's 2-1 victory at Cincinnati on Saturday afternoon.

"In 18 years of coaching that was one of the best outings that I have ever seen," said head coach Terry Rooney. "Not just statistically, but it was in a time of need. Zach placed our team on his back and put everything in his own hands and did a terrific job.

Rodgers (5-0) notched his fifth victory by yielding three hits and only one run.

A solo homer to right field by James Vasquez in the second inning provided the Knights with the early momentum.

"JV [James Vasquez] is a leader on our team and has been here four years and knows what it takes," said Rooney. "He is respected by everyone and an incredible leader. Great leaders step up when you need them and he did that today."

During the fourth frame, Vasquez drove in his second run of the day with an RBI groundout, 2-0.

Cincinnati saw a complete-game tossed by Dalton Lehnen (1-5), who also recorded a career-best with 11 strikeouts.
