GRAMBLING — Shemar Page added to his impressive season on Friday night as the Grambling State University baseball team opened its Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) series with Alcorn State at Wilbert Ellis Field at R.W.E. Jones Park.
Page threw just 84 pitches in a perfect game, collecting a season and career-high 13 strikeouts in the process, as the Tigers won their third consecutive SWAC game and 11th straight over Alcorn State with a 16-0 victory in seven innings.
“I was aware going into the seventh of having a no-hitter, but wasn’t aware of a perfect game,” Page said. “I did a pretty good job of getting ahead all night and that was my focus going into the seventh.”
The Tigers wrapped up the series sweep over Alcorn State on Sunday with a 26-3 win.
Grambling State outscored Alcorn State, 67-6, in the three games over the weekend and 124-21 in six conference games this season.
