Andie Formby became the 26th softball pitcher in Kansas University history to throw a no-hitter when she pitched KU to a 9-0 rout of Saint Louis on Sunday at Arrocha Ballpark at Rock Chalk Park.
Formby struck out four and faced only 20 batters in a game shortened by run-rule.
“I came out today and focused on getting outs,” Formby said. “It’s easier to get the outs with the defense behind me, I couldn’t ask for a better defense.”
Shannon McGinley went 2-for-3 with two runs and Erin McGinley 2-for-4 with a run and two RBIs to pace the KU offense. Erin McGinley, Harli Ridling and Kylee Kennedy homered.
Kansas will host Evansville in a doubleheader starting at 11 a.m. Tuesday.
