Arizona softball will go as far as their pitching takes them this season, so when Taylor McQuillin is throwing like she did Sunday, their potential is limitless.
The left-hander tossed her first career no-hitter in an 8-0 win over New Mexico in the final game of the Kajikawa Classic in Tempe.
McQuillin (2-1) struck out 11 Lobos, and faced one batter over the minimum as the Wildcats run-ruled UNM in five innings. The junior nearly threw a perfect game, but walked a batter in the top of the fifth.
It’s the 91st no-hitter in UA history. The Wildcats had two last year, including a perfect game by Michelle Floyd.
Sophomore shortstop Jessie Harper homered twice — a two-run shot in the third, then a three-run bomb in the fourth — while Aleah Craighton launched a three-run homer to left to give McQuillin more than enough run support.
