Ben Kincaid from Minnesota State was named Player of the Week. The freshman from Eau Claire, WI was 4-7 for the 2 games against Southwest Minnesota State on Friday which ended in a split. It was his 2 run homer in the 6-1 win that helped open up a 4 run lead.

They were in the process of researching if/when the last no-hitter may have been (seems like something they should keep track of?). He had talked to head coach, Mark Danker, who believed that there might have been 1 other no hitter 13-14 years ago but he wasn’t sure if that was a full 7 inning game.
