CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Junior lefthander Bryan Radziewski struck out a career-high 11 batters in just five innings of work, and No. 24 Miami cruised to a 5-0 win over visiting UCF Wednesday night at Alex Rodriguez Park.

"It feels great," Radziewski said after the game. "Hard work pays off."

Radziewski, making only his second start in 2013, opened the game by striking out the side in the first inning. He would record multiple strikeouts in each of his next four frames, finishing with a new career high and registering the first double-digit strikeout performance by a Miami pitcher this season.

"The biggest thing to see is that he's healthy," head coach Jim Morris said. "I know he can win, I know he can pitch in big games, he pitched on Friday nights as a freshman and beat very good teams."

The Miami, Fla., native, coming off season-ending shoulder surgery in 2012, faced the minimum of 15 batters through his five innings, and didn't allow a hit in his longest stint of the season.

"Tonight he beat a good club in Central Florida," Morris continued. "He can beat anyone on our schedule on a given night. If he's healthy, he can win."

Freshman David Thompson gave the Hurricanes (12-2) all the offense they would need in the first inning, connecting on his second career homerun over the rightfield fence. The opposite-field shot, which plated senior Chantz Mack, proved to be the early game-winner.

"He was working everyone away and didn't throw real hard," Thompson said. "He left a fastball up over the outside part of the plate, and wind helped it out a little bit."

Junior Brad Fieger connected on an RBI single in the fourth that extended his career-best 13 game hitting streak, while a bases-loaded walk issued to senior Michael Broad in the sixth and an RBI single from senior Alex San Juan in the eighth helped clinch Miami's fifth consecutive midweek victory.

The Hurricanes' bullpen was impressive yet again, as senior Eric Whaley, sophomore Alexander Fernandez and senior Eric Nedeljkovic combined to finish off Miami's second shutout of the season and first since opening weekend against Rutgers.

"We've all been working hard," Thompson said. "We've been playing really well."

Miami will open conference play Friday night, facing off against Duke at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field. First pitch for the weekend series opener is set for 7 p.m.
