Ryan Cooper | NCAA.com | May 25, 2017 Elon eliminated from CAA tournament despite no-hitter Share One would probably guess the first no-hitter in the history of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament would result in the team pulled off the feat feeling a little more celebratory, but that wasn't the case for Elon on Thursday. Phoenix pitchers Jordan Barrett and George Kirby combined to throw eight innings of hitless baseball, walking three, but a fifth-inning run was enough to make College of Charleston a winner. You don't see this everyday!@elonbaseball throws the first no-hitter in #CAAChamps history but @cofcbaseball gets the win pic.twitter.com/HWVGeeE0b3 — CAASports (@CAASports) May 25, 2017 That run in the bottom of the fifth — which immediately followed a 93-minute rain delay — came after a walk, sacrifice bunt, passed ball and RBI groundout. Despite having runners on base in each remaining inning, including a runner thrown out at the plate in the eighth, Elon was unable to scratch any runs across and was eliminated from the tournament after dropping its first game 5-2 to William & Mary that same morning. You don't see this every day in baseball.
