Davidson's Sisson no-hits Wofford
Freshman pitches sixth no-no in Wildcat history, first since 2001
DAVIDSON, N.C. -- Davidson freshman Henry Sisson threw a no-hitter with nine strikeouts as the Wildcats defeated Wofford 1-0 on Friday night at Wilson Field.
Junior shortstop Michael Zeblo scored the lone Davidson (12-19, 4-12 SoCon) run on a solo home run to right field to lead off the bottom of the fifth inning.
It was the first Davidson no-hitter since Wes Self threw one against High Point on Feb. 15, 2001 and just the sixth in Wildcats history.
RHP Brandon Yarusi (3-4) pitched well for Wofford (13-20, 3-10 SoCon) as well, pitching all eight innings and allowing just the one run, six hits and two walks, while also striking out nine.
Sisson (2-1) allowed four base runners to reach base, three on walks and one on an error when he dropped a toss from senior first baseman Calvin Sigelbaum attempting to cover first base in the second inning.
Sisson used his defense in the top of the ninth inning to accomplish the feat. Junior third baseman Andrew Barna fielded a grounder and completed the throw for the first out and senior centerfielder Drew Gadaire successfully tracked a high, pop-fly in centerfield for the second. Senior second baseman James Cerbie made a tough play to his left and an accurate throw to beat third baseman Eric Brenk by a step for the final out.
