Army's Robinett tosses no-hitter

MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. -- Senior right-handed pitcher Alex Robinett tossed the fifth no-hitter in Army history and struck out 10 Longwood hitters in Army's 1-0 series-opening victory on Saturday afternoon at Big Rock Stadium.

Robinett (1-1) earned his first win of the season, after walking four and hitting two Longwood batters.

"It was a great effort by Robinett today and their pitcher Myers was good too," head coach Matt Reid said. "Alex kept us in the game and fortunately we were able to to get a big base hit in the sixth."

His opponent, right-hander Aaron Myers, was excellent as well in a complete-game six-hit effort. Myers fanned six and walked two, but Army was able to crack him in the top of the sixth inning on Alex Jensen's RBI single.

With Ben Smith on second base and two men out after he led off the inning with a walk, Jensen dropped a single into the gap in left center to bring home the eventual winning run.

Second baseman Kris Lindner went 2-for-4 on the day, while freshman Brandon Lee registered his first-career hit. Harold Earls and Smith also singled in the victory.

Robinett allowed baserunners in all but three innings, the third, eighth and ninth frames and finished the game by retiring the final seven hitters he faced. He ended the gem with a strikeout of Brandon Delk to finish his seventh-career complete game.

The Army righty's no-no was the first Army no-hitter since Logan Lee accomplished the feat on April 21, 2012 against Bucknell.

The Black Knights improved to 3-1 on the young season, while Longwood dipped to 2-6.
