Transylvania University’s Braden Johnson (Crestwood, Ky./South Oldham) tossed a nine-inning no-hitter in a 12-0 win over Defiance Sunday and has been named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Baseball Pitcher of the Week.
The freshman right hander faced 28 batters and recorded five strikeouts in the victory. The effort was the first no-hitter in the modern era of Transylvania baseball and was the first in the HCAC since 2005.
Transylvania (10-10, 4-2 HCAC) will face Hanover and Earlham in Lexington this week.
