And for good reason.
Prizina not only pitched a no-hitter on the mound, but he overshadowed his stellar pitching performance by his career day at the plate.
Prizina launched three home runs as part of his four-hit night. That was just part of the impressive stats.
After his three-run shot in the third inning, Prizina belted out a pair of grand slams during an 11-run rally in the sixth inning.
The big rally blew open a 6-1 lead after five innings.
Prizina struck out eight and walked four in his complete-game victory.

First pitch for that game is at 2:30 p.m. at Gepford Park in Sun Valley. The winners of the first-round games play again today at 7:30 p.m.
On the 8-year-olds side, Spanish Springs jumped out to an early lead with two runs in the top of the first, but the local squad watched Silver State score a run in each of the first three innings to take the lead for good.
Spanish Springs coach Matt Turley said he was proud of how his team battled back.
Silver State led 6-3 heading into the final inning.
With one out in the top of the sixth, Spanish Springs cut the deficit to 6-4. With two outs, Spanish Springs made it 6-5. Spanish Springs had runners on second and third with one of its better hitters coming to the plate, but the runner on third lifted his foot off the base for a second and was tagged out on a freak plate during the action following a base hit.
Hayden Sullivan led the way for Spanish Springs at the plate, going 2-for-2 with an RBI. Donovan Ratfield added a double.
The 8-year-olds conclude round robin action today against host Sun Valley at 6 p.m. The single-elimination bracket, for a chance to represent Nevada at the regional tournament, starts Sunday.
