Junior right-handers Liam Eddy and Foster Gifford teamed-up to spin a one-hitter, helping the Wichita State University baseball team secure a 5-1 victory over the Northwestern State Demons Saturday afternoon, Feb. 15, at Brown-Stroud Field.
 
The win was the first of the season for the Shockers (1-1) and the inaugural collegiate triumph for new WSU head coach Eric Wedge.
 
Eddy and Gifford – both Brighton, Colo., natives – combined to throw the 36th one-hitter in program history and the first since May 22, 2014, when the Shockers defeated Southern Illinois, 2-1 in 12 innings, in the Missouri Valley Conference tournament in Terre Haute, Ind.

Wichita State is scheduled to face Northwestern State (1-1) in the series finale at 1 p.m. on Sunday, February 16.
