Cal State Fullerton right-hander Colton Eastman threw the fifth no-hitter in school history with a 3-0 win at UC Santa Barbara on Thursday. Eastman logged the first no-hitter by the Titans since 2014 and the first no-hitter in school history on the road. The previous four no-hitters came at Goodwin Field on the Fullerton campus. UCSB was no-hit for the first time since 1967.
Eastman’s no-hitter was the 17th Division I no-hitter this season, the most in NCAA history since aluminum bats were introduced in 1974. It was the second no-hitter in as many days as Lehigh no-hit St. Peter’s in a 14-0 win on Wednesday. Peter Woltersdorf (6 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K, 2 HBP) and Matt Svanson (3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K) combined on the no-hitter against the Peacocks.
