Brielle Vidmar tossed her first no-hitter on Mar. 15, leading the Sonoma State softball team to an 8-0 victory in five innings in game one of the doubleheader against host Cal State Dominguez Hills in Carson. The Seawolves (16-7, 11-5 CCAA) also won game two, 11-3, to sweep the four-game series with the Toros (1-24, 0-20 CCAA) and extend their win streak to seven games.
Vidmar's no-hitter is the 22nd no-hitter in SSU softball history. The last one was on Feb. 27, 2015 when Amanda Llerena held Cal State San Bernardino without a hit. It was also the second no-hitter for Sonoma State against Cal State Dominguez Hills; the first and last time came back on May 4, 1999 when Suzanne Richards no-hit the Toros.
Though no Cal State Dominguez Hills batter got a hit off Vidmar in game one on Wednesday, three Toros did reach base -- two via hit by pitch and the other by a walk. Vidmar struckout four in the effort.
Meanwhile, the Seawolf offense scored eight runs in the first game to induce the eight-run "mercy rule." Karly Macadangdang got it started with a leadoff home run to straight away center field. Five more runs came in to score in the top of the fifth inning, starting with a two-run double by Jordan White, followed by an RBI single by Alyssa Cuffia, an RBI groundout by Sarah Langley, then a fielder's choice sacrifice bunt by Calcany Blair to make it 8-0 in favor of the Seawolves.
White led the way offensively in game two, going 3 for 4 with a double, a home run, an RBI and three runs scored.
