Kellogg hurls ninth no-hitter in Sun Devil history in 4-0 win vs. No. 3 Oregon State
CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Freshman left-hander Ryan Kellogg recorded the ninth no-hitter in Arizona State history to lead the 20th-ranked Sun Devils to a 4-0 win against No. 3 Oregon State on Saturday at Goss Stadium.
Kellogg (5-0) completed ASU's first no-hitter since Feb. 2, 1993, the school's first in conference play, the second on the road and the fourth by a freshman in program history. He did not allow a walk in 110 pitches as OSU's only two base runners of the game reached on Sun Devil errors.
"It is definitely a huge moment in my career, as well as for ASU baseball," Kellogg said. "To come out and have a performance like this after the day we had [Friday], especially against No. 3 Oregon State, is great for the team and the program."
Kellogg's perfect game was broken up with one out in the seventh inning when shortstop Drew Stankiewicz made an error that allowed the second batter of the frame to reach first. A dropped fly ball by right fielder Trever Allen in the eighth inning put another Beaver on base, but neither made it past first.
"I knew [our defenders] were behind me the whole game," Kellogg said. "I only had two strikeouts and they came in the last inning, so they made all the other plays for me."
The Sun Devils (13-6-1, 2-3) handed Oregon State its first conference loss and its second loss of the season. It was the first no-hitter the Beavers (20-2, 4-1) have allowed since 1994 against Lewis-Clark State.
