Posted on 04/16/2013 5:08:13 PM PDT by Kolath
A trio of Huskers combined for the eighth no-hitter in school history on Tuesday afternoon, as Kyle Kubat, Tyler Niederklein and Dylan Vogt held the No. 10 Arkansas Razorbacks hitless in a 3-0 Nebraska win in the first game of a doubleheader.
It was the fourth combined no-hitter in school history and the first no-hitter since four Huskers no-hit Peru State on March 6, 1993. Tuesday was the first no hitter against a Division I program since April 5, 1981, when Anthony Kelley no-hit the Oklahoma Sooners.

It seems odd to have 3 pitchers combine for a no-hitter.
With today’s aluminum bats, a no hitter is even harder to pitch.
Otherwise it's just more designated hitter / infield fly rule / aluminum bat adulteration.
Let me guess..you kid is on the team..
Nope, just love baseball and we need something other than doom and gloom.
I’m about 50 years past paying attention to baseball, but have to ask is a no hitter with 3 pitchers more rare than with a single one?
OK, I understand the dislike of the designated hitter and aluminum bats, but infield fly rule?
you’re right - once a relief pitcher comes in, it counts as a hit for the other team - great catch!!!!
and two of his three pet peeves actually make no-hitters more difficult to obtain
That’s good to go.
My one concession to modernity is the ground rule double .. grudgingly.
The infield fly rule is an absolute necessity.
Too many “Oops,I dropped the ball” incidents without it.
Yes, if a pitcher is pitching a no hitter you normally would not pull him. Maybe if he started walking a lot or they started really hitting him hard and the defense makes a couple of great plays to preserve it.
“catch it, runner’s out”
so if a fly ball is caught, the runner should be out...this gets curiouser and curiouser, as they say....would make for a fascinating new game
< bedtime >
As a diehard Razorback fan this is nothing short of pure embarrassment. No hit by a big ten or whatever they are now. Hog coach Dave van horn made the Nebraska team what it is today.
Bedtime - yeah, I know how that goes brother :) - have a good one
From what I understand, the bats used in college baseball are a lot different these days; they apparently lack quite a bit in the power department unlike the ones a couple of decades ago.
As a Nebraska fan, I love Dave Van Horn, but don’t blame him for the state of our current baseball team. It was an off night for the Razorbacks.
And thats the big 11-err-big 12 ... OK, I see your point.
I was just reading something about the bats having less of the jack rabbit in them on the Oklahoma State forum. It sounds like it must be fairly recent change.
yes, rare indeed. It’s one thing when a single pitcher is on a hot streak, another when relief pitchers come into play. All pitchers have be at their best with a lot of luck.
