College baseball player throws no-hitter, hits for cycle in monstrous single-game display
Hitting for a cycle is one of the rarest feats in baseball. Throwing a no-hitter is probably even rarer, with some of the greatest pitchers of all time never completing one. One college baseball player out of the University of Indianapolis did both in the same game Friday evening.

Brady Ware, the player in question, led D-II UIndy over Drury Friday with what’s safe to say will be the best game of his career. That performance is pretty impossible to top.
Obviously, Ware is the first UIndy player to accomplish the feat in the same game. He’s also the first Greyhound player to throw a no-hitter since 2015 and the first to hit for the cycle since 2013. According to UIndy, this is the first time a combined no-hitter/cycle has been achieved in the same game by a student athlete in NCAA history.

The Greyhounds went on to win 12-0. Ware threw a total of 11 strikeouts with 5 RBI, of course including the solo home run to earn the cycle.
