College baseball: No-hitter vaults Henderson State past Southeastern Oklahoma
Chris Hunt put on a stellar performance as the Greenwood, Arkansas, native pitched a no-hitter in Henderson State's 10-0 win over Southeastern Oklahoma, Friday at the Great American Conference Tournament in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.
The junior right-hander faced just one batter above the minimum in giving up a walk. Hunt struck out a career high eight batters and his 99th and final pitch was a fly ball to Reddie first-baseman Hunter Mayall.
The no-hitter was the eighth in Henderson State history with the last coming in 2003 when TJ Hendricks blanked Ouachita Baptist 8-0.
Southeastern Oklahoma, 29-24 on the year, had its lone base runner in the fourth win Logan Terwilliger reached on a two-out walk. Hunt then retired the next 16 batters he faced with 76 of his pitches being strikes.
The Reddies, 30-24, gave Hunt plenty of run support as Henderson banged out 16 hits in the game.
Jared Gage led the way for Henderson with three hits including a home run and three runs batted in, whileJordan Taylor and Hayden Lessenberry also had three hits each.
Taylor drove in a run, while Lessenberry had a double and a RBI as well.
Tadarious Hawkins had two hits including hitting his school record 10th triple of his career to go along with a pair of runs batted in.
