Gaffin throws no-hitter in first career start for No. 2 Tennessee

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Hannah Akamine hit two home runs in the first game Rainey Gaffin threw a no-hitter in her first collegiate start in the circle in the second game to lead No. 2 Tennessee to a pair of wins against Wright State on Wednesday at Lee Stadium.

Tennessee (17-1) took a 9-0, six-inning win in the first game after Akamine hit two home runs and Megan Geer hit a walk-off, two-run homer to left field to end the game in the sixth. Ellen Renfroe tossed a nine-strikeout, six-inning shutout to earn her 10th win of the season.

Gaffin was brilliant in the circle in Game 2, tossing a six-strikeout no-hitter over six frames to lead UT to an 8-0 win against Wright State. Gaffin is the first UT pitcher to throw a no-no in her first collegiate start in the circle since Monica Abbott did it on Feb. 5, 2004, against Saint Mary’s. The no-hitter was the 45th in Tennessee softball history. It was UT’s first no-hitter since Ellen Renfroe threw one against Utah State in a 10-0 (5) win on Feb. 8, 2013.
