Elon eliminated from CAA tournament despite no-hitter

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.

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. 

College of Charleston, on the other hand, will continue its quest to reach Saturday's championship in Wilmington, North Carolina
