The last time Jason Hoppe let the other team score, more than seven weeks ago, Minnesota was still seeing regular snow.

Just a few more outs without a run, and the junior right-hander will set a lofty record.

Hoppe has a streak of 51 2-3 straight scoreless innings he’ll take to the mound on Thursday for Minnesota State in the NCAA Division II baseball tournament. The all-time single-season college mark is 54, set in 2006. With a win, the Mavericks will advance to the national championship game for the first time in program history.

Hoppe last allowed a run in the first inning of his start on April 7. He has a 1.03 ERA and four shutouts this season.
