Hymel Throws No-Hitter - Video

Senior LHP Jordan Hymel accomplished something that is rare in baseball and is almost unheard of in college baseball...he threw a no-hitter.  The former Lutcher Bulldog threw SLU's 4th no-hitter in school history, as the Lions completed the weekend series sweep over Texas Southern 9-0 on Sunday.

Earning his first win of the season, Hymel (1-1) fanned seven Tigers and walked six, giving up no runs on no hits over nine innings of work.  It was Hymel's first career complete game.  “Jordan was outstanding today,” coach Jay Artigues said. “His fastball had a little run on it and he struggled to command it because of that. He did a great job making some adjustments. Coach Latham did a great job of helping him tinker with a few things and Jordan just took over from there."

Hymel's no-hitter is SLU's first since 1979 when Blaine Roseberry and John Morton combined on a seven-inning no-hitter against Louisiana College.  It is the first complete-game, nine-inning no-hitter for the Lions since Kenny Lehrmann completed the feat against Louisiana-Lafayette in 1976 and the first for Southeastern at the NCAA Division I level.
