Jordan Kipper has done some good things on the diamond since leaving Mountain Pointe for Central Arizona.

He went 9-3 with a 2.78 ERA as freshman and threw a no-hitter.

Now, he did something that is difficult to do these days – win two games of a doubleheader.

In game one against Gateway he threw a complete game shutout (3 hits, 9 Ks) and got the win. The second game was tied after 11 innings when it was stopped on Feb. 26.

It was resumed two weeks later and Jordan started the 12th inning and threw five shutout innings to get the win in the 16th inning.

On the season, the 6-foot-5 right-hander is 8-1 with a 1.20 ERA in 10 games to rank second in the country in wins and in the top 10 in ERA.

He is committed to Texas Christian next season, but he might never step on campus if he keeps being as effective as he has been thus far. Scouts are taking notice of his power arm (49 Ks, 6 walks in 53 innings) and it could give him something to think about after this year’s June draft.
