No-hitter a first at Quinnipiac

Quinnipiac junior Kyle Birdsall threw a seven-inning no-hitter, the first in program history, as the Bobcats’ baseball team defeated Monmouth 6-0 in the first game of a Northeast Conference doubleheader Saturday at Hamden.
Monmouth bounced back to win the second game 8-2.
Birdsall was masterful as he struck out a career-best 10 batters. In his sixth start of the season, Birdsall went the distance for just the second time this year. The right-hander was perfect through 5 2/3 innings before he walked Josh Boyd and hit Anthony Lawrence with a pitch to put two runners on before striking out Jake Gronsky to end the inning.
For the day, Mickey Amanti ran his team-best hitting streak to 15 games with a pair of hits in each game, while Ben Farina was 3-for-6 with three runs for Quinnipiac (13-13, 9-6).
