Conway’s Holmes, Carolina Forest’s Knab among trio to toss no-hitter for South Carolina

The Associated PressFebruary 24, 2013 

— Three pitchers – including Conway native Colby Holmes and Carolina Forest product Josh Knab – combined Sunday for the first no hitter for South Carolina in nearly 37 years.

Homes, the starter, went six innings with three strikeouts and a walk, Forrest Koumas went two innings with three walks and a strikeout and Knab let no one on base as he picked up the final three outs as South Carolina beat Albany 14-1 in the first game of a doubleheader.

Albany got its only run in the fourth inning on a leadoff walk, a throwing error and a sacrifice fly. The Great Danes (0-4) led 1-0 going into the bottom of the fifth before the Gamecocks (4-1) scored nine.

Sunday was the first South Carolina no-hitter since March 1975 when Ray Lavigne led South Carolina to an 8-0 win over George Mason.
