Texas A&M Aggies senior pitcher Ross Stripling threw the 11th no-hitter in Aggies history as his stunning pitching performance was sorely needed in a 1-0 defeat over the San Diego State Aztecs on Saturday in College Station.
For Stripling, on the day he was supposed to walk across the stage, he got a gift he could've expected waking up in the morning.
"They were hitting some balls hard, they were just right at guys. It ended up being the best pitching game of my life." -- Ross Stripling
The Aggies scored its only run in the second inning as Blake Allemand singled in Chance Bolcerek. Stripling struck out seven Aztecs hitters, as only a fifth-inning walk prevented a perfect outing from the senior. The hurler threw 106 pitches over nine innings at Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park. The Aggies are now 36-14 on the season.
