Stillman College baseball opened the season Wednesday with a double-header sweep against Oakwood University, including a no-hitter in the 21-0 win in Game Two. Its Stillman’s first no-hitter since 2013.

Three Stillman pitchers combined on the no-hitter: Hayes Brown, Steven Oates, and Mason Collins. They combined for 18 strikeouts in the seven inning game.

Stillman won the first game over Oakwood, 26-2. The Tigers had nine different players get off at least one hit. One of the players, Sieas Elliot, hit the first home run of the season for Stillman in the top of the seventh inning. The 26 runs that they scored were the most in Stillman’s current NAIA era.

During the pitching performance, Steven Oates pitched the first three innings with eight strikeouts. He was followed by Hayes Brown, who threw four strikeouts.
