Myhre’s no-hitter highlights 3-1 weekend for MSU baseball

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. — Junior right-handed hurler Noah Myhre carved his name into the Minot State baseball record book with a seven-inning no-hitter on Friday against Missouri Western State.

Myhre needed 106 pitches to record 21 outs — seven of which came via strikeouts. He faced 24 batters in total by allowing two walks and giving up a free base on a hit by pitch.

With the Beavers scoring five runs in the first inning, Myhre was able to cruise relatively stress-free on the mound. MSU (6-4) won 10-0 and wrapped up the four-game series against Missouri Western State with three wins in total.

Game 1 on Friday went nine innings with the Beavers scoring four runs in the ninth to earn an 8-5 victory. Blake Gallagher came through with a clutch two-run single.

Myhre’s no-hitter earned a first-day sweep in the series. Gunnar Kozlowitz (four RBIs), Jake Collins (three RBIs), Declan Buckle (two RBIs) and Drew Behling drove in MSU’s 10 runs.

Zach Newman picked up where Myhre left off with a complete-game shutout in Game 3 on Saturday for the Beavers. Newman gave up four hits in seven innings. He struck out seven batters and didn’t allow a walk.

Trevaun Smith and Ryley Humrighouse each had three hits as the Beavers’ offense rolled to another lopsided win, 11-0.

Missouri Western State denied Minot State a clean four-game sweep with a 12-7 win in Game 4.

MSU led briefly at 6-5 in the fourth inning, but the Griffons scored six runs in the sixth inning to put the game out of reach.

Jackson Polorney, Nolan Monthei, Kozlowitz and Buckle each finished with two hits apiece and collected at least one RBI for the Beavers.

MSU used seven pitchers. Branden Hatley picked up the loss out of the bullpen.

The Beavers head to Colorado next weekend (Feb. 28 through March 1) for a four-game series against Colorado Mesa.
