Happy Birthday - May 22

On May 22 we're wishing a happy birthday to baseball's Bret Marks

Marks recently completed his senior season with the Vols and went 4-5 on the hill with a 2.92 ERA. He logged 89 strikeouts through 77.0 innings of work during the 2015 season and will finish his career on Rocky Top with a career ERA of 3.46 to go along with 99 strikeouts over his two seasons in the orange and white. A transfer from Wallace State Community College, Marks prepped at Blessed Trinity Catholic High School in Roswell, Georgia, and is 23 years old today.

Happy birthday, Bret!

Tennessee Baseball made national headlines following a record-setting win over the No. 3-ranked Florida Gators on Friday night, propelled by an 8.0 no-hit inning performance from starting senior Bret Marks.
Marks' 8.0 innings established a new career high for the righthander, as he did not allow a hit until the top of the ninth inning in Gainesville against the Gators. He threw 101 total pitches and struck out eight batters en route to earning the win.

The Vols' offense produced another record feat, blasting four home runs against Florida's starting pitcher Logan Shore, who was 3-0 with a 0.00 ERA entering Friday's contest. Three of UT's homers came in the first inning, led by junior A.J. Simcox's solo homer to left field to snap Shore's 23.2 scoreless innings streak to start the season. The home run was the first of Simcox's career as a Vol and paved the way for sophomore Nathaniel Maggio, who later hit a two-run shot over the right field wall for his first-ever homer in a Tennessee uniform. To top off the first frame, designated hitter Andrew Lee laced one off of the right field foul pole, giving Tennessee a 4-0 advantage in the first inning. Maggio and Lee became the first pair to hit back-to-back homers for UT since May 18, 2010. 

Capping off the Tennessee slugfest was cleanup batter Christin Stewart, who sent one sailing over the right field wall again in the third to make it a UT 5-0 lead. Stewart's home was his team-leading fourth of the year.
Entering Friday night's game against Florida, Tennessee's offense had knocked four home runs all season before knocking four against Florida's Shore alone.

With a near no-hit effort and an incredible display of offense against the Gators, here's a look at the recent headlines made for Bret Marks and Tennessee Baseball:
