The Warning Track with Brian Foley checks in today with some of the best action from Friday night.
The first story of the night was Kent State’s Brad Stillings (TCBB 40th Best Player) twirling a nine inning no-hitter against Toledo as the Golden Flashes picked up a 1-0 victory over MAC rival Toledo. Stillings went nine innings without walking anyone and only a second inning error kept him from getting a perfect game. This game was only the 10th no-hitter in Golden Flash history.Full Recap of the game is available by clicking here.
The TCU Horned Frogs also picked up a no-hitter on Friday night as they beat UT-Pan American 3-0. TCU starter Walker Kelly worked the first four innings where he only allowed a walk and a hit batter for the only two base runners of his appearance. He was followed by Tyler Cragin who went two innings while only allowing two walks. He was followed by Tyler Lockwood who also went two innings while only allowing a hit batter to get on base. Erik Marshall worked the ninth inning where he also hit a batter but did not allow a hit to pick up the save.
Shane Davis of Canisius pitched a seven inning complete game as he picked up a 6-0 victory. Davis pitched all seven innings while only allowing a third inning single to Iona’s Matthew Simone. It would have been nice to see what Davis could have done over a nine inning game.
How about Alex White dominating Florida State through eight innings before blowing a one run lead in the bottom of the ninth to come out of Dick Howser Stadium with a 3-2 loss? White ended up pitching 8.1 innings allowing five hits and three runs (two earned). He had only allowed two hits and a single run heading into the bottom of the ninth but Mike Fox decided to stay with White and it proceeded to backfire.
Casey Haerther of UCLA did not start on Friday night but did appear as a pinch hitter but flew out. He appeared to run slowly down to first base and did not get another at bat on the evening. He is currently suffering from a broken toe that he suffered in Thursday game when he fouled a pitch off of his foot.
