NW Briefs: UW records no-hitter
Washington pitchers Tim Lincecum and Nick Hagadone combined for the Huskies' first no-hitter in 37 years Sunday in a 9-0 victory over Santa Clara at Husky Ballpark to complete a series sweep.
Lincecum (4-1) threw six innings and Hagadone retired all nine batters he faced over the final three to wrap up the no-hitter, the first on record by the Huskies since March 1969 (precise date unknown) when Gary Huson threw a seven-inning no-hitter over San Jose State in a 6-0 Huskies win.
Game-by-game records for much of the history of UW baseball are incomplete.
"Tim's special," said Huskies coach Ken Knutson. "He really had it going. If you can believe it, he got a blister on his finger in the third inning, so he couldn't throw his fastball very much. He got on a roll and did his thing. Then Hagadone came in and was just outstanding.
"I don't know if I've been more nervous my whole career. It was awesome."
Lincecum, from Renton's Liberty High, was replaced by Hagadone, a sophomore left-hander from Sumner, to begin the seventh inning, having thrown 119 pitches. Lincecum walked seven and struck out 11.
Huskies third baseman Matt Stevens (3 for 4) hit two home runs for the second straight game, with five runs batted in.
