UK throws two perfect games in doubleheader

UK had already made history: the first perfect game thrown in program history, a six-inning, 15-strikeout performance from Chanda Bell.

It didn’t wait to do it again: the second perfect game in program history, a five-inning performance, four-strikeout performance from Rachel Riley.

The two UK pitchers combined for 11 straight innings of no baserunners (and a combined 29-0 score) against Austin Peay.

Bell had already thrown two no-hitters this year and three in her career, but the perfect game was the first in UK history.

Riley provided her own offense as well, going 4-for-4 with 6 RBI in the second game, a 16-0 win that improved UK to 27-7 on the year.

Austin Peay (8-27) hits .222 and has a .299 on-base percentage for the year, including the games against UK.
