Former Colorado Rockies draftee and current Texas A&M Aggies pitcher Ross Stripling threw a no-hitter against the San Diego St. Aztecs in a 1-0 victory on Saturday afternoon. Stripling struck out seven and walked one batter. That one runner was subsequently gunned down while trying to steal second base.
Texas A&M scored its only run of the game in the second error, mostly due to errors. Chance Bolcerek reached first on a fielding error and then advanced to second base on a throwing error on a botched pickoff attempt.
For the year, Stripling is 9-2 with a 2.36 ERA. This is his fourth complete game and first shutout of the season. The Rockies drafted Stripling in the ninth round of the 2011 MLB Draft, but after his team made its way out of the College World Series he decided to return to school for his junior year. He will be eligible for the draft in June once again and is likely to go somewhere in the first 10 rounds.
