Curfman goes from shaky to sensational for Northern State
Chugiak’s Cody Curfman had every reason to throw in the towel.
The Northern State University right-hander trailed 6-0 after the first inning. He gave up six hits to the first nine batters and looked iffy.
From shaky to sensational, the starting pitcher battled back to work five shutout innings and strike out 10 batters from the University of Findlay in Winer Haven, Florida.
Curfman, of Chugiak High fame, ended five of six innings with a strikeout and at one point retired nine straight hitters.
He induced a double play in the second inning and struck out the side in the fourth inning.
Curfman last year went 4-4 with a 3.59 ERA and 57 Ks over 62.2 innings for the NCAA D2 Wolves of Aberdeen, South Dakota.
His career high for strikeouts is 11 against Bemidji State.
