SLC-ex Ross Stripling hurls no-hitter for A&M

May, 12, 2012

Southlake Carroll product Ross Stripling threw the 11th no-hitter in Texas A&M history Saturday, leading the seventh-ranked Aggies to a 1-0 home win over San Diego State.

The senior, who was scheduled to participate in graduation ceremonies Saturday, allowed only a fifth-inning walk while striking out seven. He threw 106 pitches.

Stripling, a ninth-round pick by the Colorado Rockies in the 2011 draft, improves to 9-2 with a 2.36 ERA.

It was A&M's first no-hitter since Zach Jackson's seven-inning gem against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi on Feb. 14, 2004. Matt Blank had the last nine-inning no-hitter for the Aggies, accomplishing the feat against Texas-Pan American on Feb. 6, 1996.

February, 15, 2012
Texas A&M right-handed pitcher Ross Stripling, a Southlake Carroll graduate, was named to ESPN.com's 2012 preseason All-America baseball team.

Stripling started last season as the Aggies' closer, earning four saves, before moving to the rotation and leading the nation in wins with a 14-2 record. He struck out 113 with just 18 walks and posted a 2.29 ERA.

Stripling was selected by the Colorado Rockies in the ninth round of last year's MLB draft but elected to stay in College Station for his senior season.

The Aggies are No. 14 in ESPN.com's preseason Power Rankings, and Texas is No. 15. Rice is the state's highest-ranked team at No. 4.
