Scali perfect for KSU

Redshirt freshman Andrea Scali pitched Kent State's first perfect game since 2017 as the Golden Flashes split a Mid-American Conference doubleheader at home against Bowling Green on Saturday to close out the regular season.

Scali (19-7) struck out a career-high 14 batters in the 4-0 win in game one. It was her third no-hitter of the season.

Bailey Brownfield notched her 200th career hit for the Flashes (25-22, 11-5) and became just the fourth player in school history to achieve the milestone.

In the second game, Bowling Green (22-29, 7-14) scored a run in the first inning on a two-out single and added another in the fourth to take a 2-0 lead. Kent State scored its only run in the fourth inning on a triple by Hunter Brancifort.
