Go Golden Panthers!

 

Didn't some guy on FIU just throw a no-hitter not to long ago, this year?

Not a complete no-hitter. Two pitchers combined for a 7-inning no hitter to win @ FAMU.

 

FIU uses no-hitter to sweep FAMU

 

From Herald Wire Services

 

 

FIU 11-13, FAMU 5-0

 

Junior Mark Worrell and Frank Gonzalez combined for a seven-inning no-htter in the second game as FIU swept a doubleheader, 11-5 and 13-0, with Florida A&M on Saturday at Tallahassee.

 

FIU ended its six-game losing streak to improve to 3-7, and the Rattlers drop to 5-9.

 

In the first game, the Golden Panthers rallied from a 5-3 deficit in the ninth inning by scoring eight runs, capitalizing on two Rattlers errors.

 

In the second game, Worrell struck out 10 in six innings before Gonzalez came on in relief. In the victory, eight of the nine starters recorded a hit with Luis Rivera going 3 for 5 with two runs, and designated hitter Mario Suarez went 2 for 3 with two RBI and three runs.

 

The Golden Panthers scored three runs in the first, sixth and seventh innings; furthermore, FIU took advantage of six errors by FAMU. Also, in the win, the speedy Golden Panthers swiped six bases with Dennis Diaz stealing a season-high three.

New article from UM's official site about the games:

 

Hurricane Baseball Visits FIU on Thursday Night

Miami will then travel to the Homestead Challenge on Friday and Saturday before returning home to face Minnesota on Sunday at 7 p.m.

 

 

Feb. 25, 2004

 

 

The University of Miami baseball team will take a mini tour of South Florida over the next four games. The Hurricanes open their road trip with cross-town rival Florida International (4-7) on Thursday, Feb. 26, at 7 p.m. at University Park on the FIU campus.

 

UM will then venture to Homestead to take on the Golden Panthers once again at 7:30 p.m. in the Papa John's Homestead Challenge. The 7:30 p.m. start time is a change from the 7 p.m. first pitch originally scheduled. Miami will play its second game in the Homestead Challenge on Saturday at the Homestead Sports Complex against LaSalle at 7 p.m.

 

The Hurricanes then return home to the friendly confines of Mark Light Field Sunday to welcome 25th-ranked Minnesota.

 

J.D. Cockroft will be UM's Thursday night starter. Cockroft is 0-1 on the season with a 4.00 ERA. Vince Bongiovanni will get the start against FIU in Homestead on Friday. He is 1-0 on the season with a team-leading 2.79 ERA. Brandon Camardese (1-0, 4.00 ERA) will go to the hill against LaSalle on Saturday.

 

Dan Touchet will get the call on Sunday, marking his first start in 373 days. His last start came against San Diego State on Feb. 21, 2003, before undergoing 'Tommy John' surgery in early March of last year.

 

Touchet has made three appearances in relief in 2004. He has thrown nine innings, allowing nine hits and four runs.

 

The Hurricanes' two games in the Papa John's Homestead Challenge will mark the school's 14th and 15th appearances in the tournament. Miami is 12-1 at the event, including a 10-9 win over Harvard in 10 innings last season.

 

The Hurricanes enter this weekend with a .314 team batting average. Gaby Sanchez is leading the way for UM with a .368 average, while Richard Giannotti is just behind at .364. Miami is slugging .515 as a team and has stolen 12-of-15 bases.

 

The pitching staff sports a 4.83 ERA in 54 innings of work with opponents hitting .258. UM is striking out eight batters per nine innings, while allowing five walks per nine innings.
