Divison II School’s Pitchers throw back to back no-hitters

There have been back to back no-hitters in pro baseball on at least two occasions, but never by the same team in both games. From AP-

Two games, two pitchers and no hits allowed for St. Augustine’s College.

Brandon Stewart and Ryan Wood each threw seven-inning no-hitters for Saint Augustine’s as the Falcons swept Lincoln (Pa.) University 10-1 and 25-2 in a doubleheader Sunday.

Stewart, a sophomore from Atlanta who also threw a no-hitter against Voorhees last season, struck out six and allowed one run in the opening-game victory for the Division II Falcons (4-8).

Wood, also a sophomore from Chester, Va., had seven strikeouts in the second game against the Lions (0-9) at the USA Baseball Complex.

Joseph Pierce was 1-for-2 with three RBIs in the first game for St. Augustine’s, while Ryan Shwedo was 3-for-5 with five RBIs and Chris Vette drove in four runs in the second. Rashad Ingram had nine of the Falcons’ 20 stolen bases on the day.

Lincoln is in serious need of some batting practice.
