GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Jonathan Crawford threw the seventh
no-hitter in NCAA tournament history, shutting down Bethune-Cookman
in a 4-0 victory in the opener of the Gainesville Regional.
Crawford, a sophomore who wasn't even part of the Gators'
three-man weekend rotation this season, was nearly perfect and
faced the minimum 27 batters. The only player to reach base was
Bethune-Cookman's Jake Welch on a walk in the third inning, and
Florida catcher Mike Zunino threw him out trying to steal.
Crawford (6-2) struck out five and walked one for the Gators'
first no-hitter since 1991, by John Burke -- also the last one
thrown in the NCAA tournament -- in a 2-0 win over Furman. Crawford
needed just 98 pitches, including 70 strikes, for Florida (43-18).
Casey Turgeon hit a three-run homer in the fifth against
Bethune-Cookman (34-26).
