Kyle_Fitzpatrick_Nohitter FIU's Kyle Fitzpatrick (left, photo courtesy Mat Ratner) pitched a no-hitter against Northeastern, Wednesday night at FIU Stadium. Fitzpatrick (1-0) had five strike outs and a walk in the Panthers' 4-0 win.

Fitzpatrick is first Panthers to pitch a no-hitter since Chris Lein no-hit Eckerd College in 1979.

Offensively for FIU, Pablo Bermudez was 2 of 5 with a run. Short stop Garrett Wittels was 1 for 4 with a run and a RBI.

First baseman Mike Martinez was 3 for 4, including connecting on his third double of the season. The Panthers had 12 hits in the game.

The Panthers (8-2), riding a seven-game winning streak, face Seton Hall, Friday at 6 p.m.

Great game to be at. Congrats to Kyle!

An ordinary night turned into a history maker; congrats to Kyle!

Excellent!

great job fitzpatrick......what a joke the miami herald is that it didn't even bother to cover this historic game.

thank god for fiusports.com and fiu student media.

also college baseball HOF called and wanted an autographed hat of KF and will be the first thing put in the 2011 exhibit along with GWs' bat.

Last time I checked I know for a fact that FIU had a no-hitter back in 2004 vs. FAMU (a combined one)...might have been a seven-inning no hitter but still counts as one and is in the school's record books. Back in those days seven inning games were part of double headers on the weekend.

@El Fantasma, according to FIU, the last no-hitter was in 1979.

props to him on the no-hitter, quite the accomplishment.

Congrat's Kyle. Way to keep piling on the accolades over there at FIU Baseball.

@Justin....look at page 105 of the FIU Baseball Media guide and it clearly states Mark Worrell and Frank Gonzalez combined no-hitter 7 inning affair....which is still a complete game because it was the back end of a doubleheader...

One walk! So close to a perfect game

yeah for kyle...what an accomplishment for an awesome team!!!go panther's

Great Coverage....you guys blow CaucK!!!!!
