In the ninth inning of the Canes’ game against the Florida Gators, Carl Chester led off by reaching base on an error before Chris Barr lined a single over short, according to the Miami Herald. The comeback attempt fell short at Mark Light Field as Florida topped Miami 7-3.
The last time the Hurricanes were no-hit was on April 18, 1964, when Florida Southern’s Ken Huebner no-hit Miami in Lakeland.
But there was also a lesser-known no-no against the Hurricanes earlier that year. On Saturday, February 29, 1964, three Milwaukee Braves pitchers no-hit the Hurricanes for a 1-0 win during an exhibition at West Palm Beach Municipal Stadium. Those pitchers were Dick Kelley (3 innings), Larry Maxie (3 innings) and a young rookie named Phil Niekro (3 innings).
The Canes got beat 5-1 during an exhibition game against the Miami Marlins on Tuesday. The squad looks to extend its college no-hit streak to 3,182 Wednesday night at home against Florida Gulf Coast University.
