For day eleven of Twelve Days of Mountaineers, we highlight a moment in WVU Baseball history that will be remembered forever despite having a shortened season.
On Mar. 4, the Mountaineers hosted Kent State in Morgantown in-front of fans right before the outbreak.
Luckily the Mountaineers’ pitching staff was able to corral an amazing performance against the Golden Flashes before the season was cut short.
Tyler Strechay got the nod for the March night game and he started off what would be a great night. Strechay pitched 5-hitless innings and got a pair of strikeouts in the win.
Dillon Meadows and Skylar Gonzalez pitched the next 3-innings, striking out a combined four batters while only allowing two walks.
In the ninth, WVU manager Randy Mazey called for Jacob Watters to close the game and finish the no-hitter.
Watters did just that.
Despite all of the pressure, the freshman from Virginia sealed the game striking out another batter, giving WVU eight strikeouts on the night.
The Mountaineers shoutout the Golden Flash, 8-0.
This combined no-hitter marked the first 9-inning no-hitter in WVU history in two decades.
