Concordia-St. Paul picks up fifth-straight shutout on Josh Gaworski's 14-strikeout no-hitter

  Josh Gaworski struck out 14 over seven innings in his no-hitter on March 18.

The Concordia-St. Paul baseball team has posted a lot of zeroes lately. Right-hander Josh Gaworski added a lot more, hurling a 14-strikeout no-hitter against Minnesota Crookston on Sunday afternoon.

The Bears are rolling, winners of five-straight games. Each one of those wins has come in shutout fashion, not allowing a run since the sixth inning on March 10. That's 38-straight innings of shutout baseball, and that is pretty good.

Gaworski kept that streak rolling on Sunday in Game 1 of a doubleheader. The junior picked up his second win of the season, hurling seven frames of no-hit baseball. He was masterful in striking out 14, including striking out the side in the final inning to preserve the no-no. His only blemishes were two walks on the afternoon. Gaworski had plenty of support behind him, as the Bears piled on 15 runs.

Concordia is now 10-3 on the season. The shutout watch continues in the nightcap of the doubleheader Sunday evening.
