The Patriots trailed early in the second game before exploding for 10 runs over the final three innings to secure the sweep. Long finished the day with 11 strikeouts in his seven innings of work.

Grove City College sophomore pitcher Lake Pry threw the Wolverines' first no-hitter in 19 years Thursday March 7 to help lead Grove City to a 10-0 victory over Penn State New Kensington at Lake Myrtle Field.

In the second game Tyler Showers was near perfect on the bump for Arcadia as he recorded the program's second ever no-hitter, leading the Knights to victory. Former Knights' hurler Matt Melcher no-hit Gwyneed-Mercy in the first round of the 2002 Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) tournament in an Arcadia 4-0.

Hunt earned the victory after he tossed 5.1 innings and struck out three. Hunt ran into trouble in the top of the sixth as he issued three walks to the first four batters he faced to load the bases with one out. Lutick came on in relief and navigated the Dickinson lineup masterfully, as he struck out the Red Devils' No. 3 and 4 batters in Joey Volpe and Alex Cohen, respectively. Volpe and Cohen have combined for 38 hits, eight doubles, and 25 RBI's entering today's game. Lutick's clutch sixth inning kept Hunt in line for the win, while also setting the reliever up for the rare 3+ inning save. In total, Lutick would throw 3.2 innings and tie his career high with six strikeouts. Today's victory also marked the first save of the season for the righty.
With their 6-0 win in the first game of a March 23rd doubleheader, Louisiana College secured their first series win over #11 Concordia (Texas) in program history. Despite the significance of the team win, the effort of Deauton Delgado on the mound was even more impressive as he threw just the second no-hitter in the NCAA era to secure the Wildcats win.  "I had a good feel for both my two and four-seam fastballs, and the slider, those really worked the best today," Delgado said. "I was feeling alright in the bull pen before the game so I felt like I was going to give us a shot today."

Senior pitcher Brian Johnson became the only student-athlete in the Springfield program's Division III history to throw multiple no hitters, as the Pride knocked off Emerson, 7-1, in game one, before defeating the Lions in game two, 11-5, to begin NEWMAC) play on March 24 at Pete Frates Diamond. Johnson pitched 9.0 innings, holding Emerson hitless while picking up nine strikeouts en route to his first win of the season.
