STONY BROOK, N.Y. (AP) - Stony Brook’s Frankie Vanderka pitched his third career no-hitter, striking out 10 in a 7-0 victory over Albany on Saturday.

The senior right-hander from Levittown, N.Y., walked two and hit a batter in the victory in the opener of a doubleheader. He struck out Brian Bullard for the final out and was mobbed by his teammates on the mound.

Vanderka (2-2) has pitched three of the four no-hitters in Stony Brook’s Division I history.

Vanderka’s first came against NJIT on March 18, 2011, and the second was against Fordham on March 10, 2013. Stony Brook’s only other no-hitter was a combined effort against Army in 2011 by Nick Tropeano and Brandon McNitt.

Stony Brook (8-9) completed the doubleheader sweep of Albany (4-10) with a 6-2 victory.
