Darby Tosses No-Hitter In Win Over Boston College
RENO, Nev. - Mallary Darby no-hit the Boston College Eagles Sunday, as The University of Nevada softball team beat BC by a 9-0 in the final game of the Wolf Pack Classic Sunday at Hixson Park.
Darby earned her fifth victory of the season for Nevada, going four innings, surrendering just one walk and striking out two. She was on from her first pitch, getting the Eagles first three hitters out on six total pitches. She was perfect until Britney Wilkins drew a two-out walk in the fourth.
Darby promptly retired Gemma Ypparila on one pitch to get out of the inning.
Nevada improved to 5-14 with the win, while Boston College fell to 4-11.
It was Darby's second career no-hitter, with her first coming against Boise State in 2009. The Pack was errorless behind her in the win.
Offensively, the Pack banged out 10 hits, including a season-high three home runs.
A Lauren Lastrapes homer in the bottom of the second inning put the Wolf Pack in front early, as the junior hammered a pitch over the wall in left.
Erin Jones added another round-tripper, her first as a member of the Wolf Pack, in the bottom of the third. The three-run shot also left the park over the left field fence.
A two-run single to right by Lastrapes, a RBI single by Megan Fincher and a two-run homer by Chelsea Venable made the score 9-0, ending the game by run rule.
Nevada will return to action Tuesday, on the road against UC Davis, playing a double header against the Aggies, with games at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
