This might not even be the biggest story in the NCAAs yesterday, because Kent State and Kentucky went 21 innings before Kent State won 7-6. Kentucky's starting DH ended up throwing 108 pitches in 9 innings of relief, which has to be a record for a starting DH.
That honor has to go to Florida sophomore Jonathon Crawford, who threw the first no-hitter in the NCAA tournament in 21 years. And wouldn't you know it, even Crawford's no-hitter was overshadowed by the first no-hitter in New York Mets history by Johan Santana.
If that's not enough for you, consider this, from ESPN stats and research: the last NCAA tournament no-hitter was also thrown by a Gator (John Burke), on May 23, 1991. That same day, there was also a no-hitter in the big leagues, by Tommy Greene of the Phillies.
This is a stupid question, but how many innings are in a college baseball game?
Though doubleheaders are two 7-inning games (or were, when I played 25 years ago).
