Steven Hill Throws First Penn State No-Hitter Since '95

It's not often that baseball gets its own front page story here on Black Shoe Diaries. Saturday, Steven Hill's performance 800 miles away from State College was cause for one.

On a day that saw perfection in the majors, Hill made some history of his own by no-hitting Iowa in a 2-0 victory over the Hawkeyes. It was the first no-hitter by a Nittany Lion since 1995 when Nate Bump threw one against Duquesne and it was the first even thrown in a Big Ten game by a Penn Stater. Hill needed 105 pitches to get through the 29 batters he faced. The only blemishes on his day were a walk and a hit-batsman. His final line: 9 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 SO.

JC Coban not only caught the no-hitter, but provided the only two runs of the game with a home run in the fifth inning.

Penn State is now 18-20 on the season and 6-5 in the Big Ten.
