San Diego State pitching change has paid off, best start since '92 season

For the 2014 season, San Diego State baseball has moved former starting pitcher Michael Cederoth to closer, and last year closer Bubba Derby to starter.

San Diego States baseball team is having it's best season since 1992, and there may be one reason for the team's hot start. Last year, closer Bubba Derby was moved up into the starting rotation, and last year starting pitcher Michael Cederoth was moved to closer.

This was a big decision for the defending Mountain West Conference champion Aztecs. A decision that did not come easy for the coaching staff.

With the change, the team is off to its best start since the 1992 season posting a 25-11 record, 10-8 in the Mountain West which puts them at fourth place but just three games behind league leader UNLV.

Since making the change, Derby is 5-1 with a 2.4 earned run average and Cederoth has an NCAA leading 12 saves with a 2.51 era. If this pitching holds up the Aztecs might be able to make a move in the standings leading up to the Mountain West tournament.
