WSU senior Scotty Sunitsch threw a no-hitter against Oregon on Sunday, the first Cougar to throw a nine-inning no hitter since 1976.

It turns out, it was really easy too.

“I just kept pitching and didn’t give up any hits, I guess that’s how it works,” Sunitsch said, via the Oregon Register-Guard “I tried not to think about it, but in the fourth inning I thought ‘Hey, I haven’t given up a hit yet so I should just keep doing that’.”

Sunitsch only needed 95 pitches to complete the outing. There were a couple of close calls, including a nice sliding catch in the ninth inning. We almost got some unwritten baseball rules drama when Oregon tried to bunt for a hit in the bottom of the eighth inning trailing 7-0. But Sunitsch threw the runner out at first.

And the happy celebration:
