Seton Hall Prep alum Rick Porcello gets first victory in the Majors

porcello042109_optJust a couple of years ago, Rick Porcello was mowing down batters for Seton Hall Prep. Now the 20-year-old is doing it for the Detroit Tigers.

The Chester native earned his first Major League victory in just his second start Sunday, when he bested Seattle, pitching seven innings and retiring his final 14 batters in order. He allowed just one run on five hits in the 8-2 Detroit victory.

He was the youngest starting pitcher for the Tigers in more than 30 years.
