Baseball America ranked the 25 best pitching performances of the shortened 2020 season on Monday. 

Junior righty Dane Acker’s no-hitter against LSU took the top spot.

On March 1, the Sooners took on LSU at the Shriners Hospitals for Children College Classic in Houston. Acker out-dueled AJ Labas, who also had a no-hitter going into the eighth inning.

Acker finished the game with 11 strikeouts and one walk on 117 pitches to give Oklahoma a 1-0 victory.

Acker’s performance was the Sooners’ first nine-inning no-hitter since 1989 and the first time LSU had been no-hit since 1978. It was also the first no-hitter in Shriners College Classic history.
