Gamecock baseball team beats Albany in game 1 with no-hitter

Posted: Updated:

Colby Holmes, Forrest Koumas and Josh Knab combined for the first no-hitter by a Gamecock baseball team since March 26, 1975 as 5th-ranked South Carolina exploded for nine runs in the bottom of the fifth inning on the way to a 14-1 win over Albany in game one of a doubleheader at Carolina Stadium. 

The no-hitter is the seventh in school history and the first combined no-hitter as well.

South Carolina finished with 15 hits in the contest.  All nine Gamecock starters reached base at least once with eight of nine tallying at least one hit.

South Carolina's last no-hitter came on March 26, 1975 when Ray Lavigne hurled a no-no in an 8-0 victory vs. George Mason at Sarge Frye Field.

Game 2 of the doubleheader got underway at 3:15 p.m.
