Maryland senior pitcher Jake Stinnett accomplished one of the most remarkable individual feats in sports on Saturday afternoon.
The California native tossed a no-hitter in a 4-0 victory against Massachusetts. Stinnett really had his stuff working as he only worked two hitters while fanning nine. The senior pitcher is now 2-1 with a 1.23 ERA and has only allowed three runs on four hits in three appearances.
For his efforts, Stinnett was named ACC Pitcher of the Week and the Louisville Slugger Player of the Week by Collegiate Baseball. It is also the second consecutive week that Stinnett was named the ACC Pitcher of the Week.
It was the seventh no-hitter in Terrapins history and the first since Scott Swinson no-hit Delaware back on May 13, 2008. It was the first at home since five Maryland pitchers combined to no-hit Coppin State on March 28, 2007.
Stinnett had a solid season in 2013 as he went 6-5 with a 2.83 ERA in 63 2/3 innings. The senior only had one complete game last year and has already outdone that in only three games.
NOTE — Due to inclement weather, Tuesday’s game at VCU has been moved to Wednesday and will still be played at 3 p.m. The Terps were supposed to face Rider on Wednesday, but that has been cancelled. No make-up date has been announced.
