SAN DIEGO — Robin Krall pitched a no-hitter Thursday as the United States International University softball team swept a doubleheader from UC Santa Barbara. The Gulls won both games by 1-0 scores.
Krall's no-hitter in the nightcap was the first by a USIU pitcher in two seasons. The Gulls scored their only run in the fourth inning of the second game on left fielder Sue Leahy's RBI single.
The first game was scoreless until the 10th, when Leahy scored from third on a dropped fly ball by UCSB second baseman January Jackson.
USIU is 10-6. UCSB is 4-6.
