Pena Throws No-Hitter in 12-0 Victory
Lisa Pena became the first Knight in over two years to throw a no-hitter. On Saturday, she shut out El Camino-Compton, allowing just two walks while striking out four in the Knights' 12-0 road victory.
The last Knight to accomplish the feat was Hannah Shafer in a 9-1 win at Imperial Valley on March 2, 2011.
It was Pena's third start in a row and the Knights' third straight win. Pena also helped her own cause on offense, going 1-for-3 with a walk and three runs.
Pena scored the first run of the game in the first inning when she came home from third base on Jazmine Hamme's ground out.
The Knights added two runs in the third when Hamme's single to left field scored Meghan Shaw. Later in the inning, Hamme advanced from third base to score on an illegal pitch.
SDCC broke the game open with six runs in the fourth inning to take a 9-0 lead. Two of those runs came in on Crystal Hernandez' triple to center field. Another came in on Jonna Kallstrom's sacrifice fly.
The Knights put an exclamation point on the game with three more runs in the fifth.
Lisa Pena retired 10 consecutive batters at one point and finished off ECC-Compton in the bottom of the fifth with a strike out, her fourth of the game.
