HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- Tyler Harrison pitched the 23rd no hitter in program history and Alabama-Huntsville earned a sweep against the Tuskegee Golden Tigers on Thursday afternoon at Charger Park. The Chargers improve to 15-2 on the year while Tuskegee falls to 2-3.
Harrison is the first UAH pitcher to throw a no-hitter since Christina Boczek achieved the feat on Feb. 15, 2012, against Stillman.
UAH has now won seven consecutive games and is 14-0 at home this season and have scored at least six runs at every home game this season.
Eight different players recorded a hit for the Chargers in the first game as Kaitlyn Bannister led the offense going a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate to go along with two RBI and Macie Couey contributed with two hits and an RBI.
In the second game of the day, Charger offense did not come alive until the bottom of third when Lauren Stavinoga got on base thanks to a fielding error followed by a Frith single to advance Stavinoga to third.
In the ensuing at bat, Couey's groundout to second scored Stavinoga for the first run of the game before Harrison's single to left field plated Frith to take a 2-0 lead.
UAH kept the offense going in the bottom of the third when Nicole Bobrowski hit a single to score Haley Thompson from second base.
The Chargers then took advantage of five errors committed by the Golden Tigers as UAH scored a run off a throwing error and Frith's single drove in Brianna Sullivan to extend the lead by five at 5-0.
