NEVADA: After suffering 10 no-decisions as a freshman in 1998, Rainer went 11-3 as a sophomore and stands at 14-4 in his career. His 11 wins in 1999 leaves him tied for second in the Nevada record book for victories in a single season. It was Rainer?s 11th victory that was the sweetest, tossing a complete-game victory over North Carolina in the NCAA Regionals that sent Nevada further into the post-season than ever before. By the time Rainer?s career is over, he should rank among Nevada?s all-time leaders in wins, winning percentage, appearances, innings pitched, and strikeouts. Rainer has a solid fastball, but his out-pitch remains a hard-breaking slider. He is a projected starter, but could easily fill any role needed by the team.

HIGH SCHOOL: Earned a total of four varsity letters in baseball and soccer at Royal High School in Simi Valley, Calif. He was a member of the baseball team that won back-to-back league championships. He was named to the all-league and all-county teams and was named the LA Times Pitcher of the Year.

PERSONAL: A secondary education major who would like an opportunity to play professional baseball. Born 2/28/79. He is the son of Raymond Rainer and Mary Ann Adams. He enjoys fishing, coaching his little brother, and playing in a band with Bo Bryant, Chad Qualls, Bryan Schultz, and Ryan Church.
