Vanderbilt's Sonny Gray struck out a career-best 14, setting a USA FISU single-game record as the Collegiate National Team beat Sri Lanka, 15-0, at the FISU World University Championships on Friday at the Utsumi Shimaoka Ball Park in Tokyo.

Gray was perfect through 3 1/3 innings, retiring 10 in a row and nine by strikeout.

Sri Lanka's Theekshana Gammanpila singled down the right field line on a ball that hit first base and popped over the head of Nick Ramirez for the lone hit of the contest.

The right-hander allowed just two base, one on a wild pitch strikeout, and faced two over the minimum through five innings to record his second win of the summer tour.

Gray also tied a CNT single-game record for strikeouts, matching Jason Jennings and B.J. Wallace.
