Double No-Nos

There must be something in that dirty water up in Massachusetts. On yesterday’s College Blog, we told you about Division III Bridgewater (Mass.) State College’s insane 57-1 win against Newbury. On Wednesday, another Bay State Division III school pulled off something incredible. Mass. College of Liberal Arts threw a pair of seven-inning no-hitters in a doubleheader against Southern Vermont, which MCLA won by a combined 31-0 score. Two no-hitters in one day–pretty impressive stuff.

There were a few interesting games in Division I as well. We saw the usual spate of midweek upsets, as Southern Mississippi topped No. 20 Mississippi 4-2, Wake Forest beat No. 19 Coastal Carolina 4-3 and Louisville beat Kentucky 8-1. Then there was the outstanding matchup between Nebraska and No. 11 Wichita State, which saw the Shockers erase a late 3-1 deficit with four runs in the eighth.
