Bulldog Sports

FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE) – On March 28th, 2009, Fresno State played a doubleheader against Lipscomb. The Bulldogs won the first game, 13-11, scoring eleven of those runs in one inning.

In Game 2, they also scored plenty of runs (10), but Derek Benny held Lipscomb to zero runs; he pitched the entire game, and he faced 27 batters.

That is the minimum.

Benny did not throw a no-hitter. He gave up two hits, but both of those baserunners were erased on double plays. He had eight strikeouts in the game and did not walk a single batter. It was the first time in 42 years that a Fresno State pitcher faced the minimum 27 batters.
