Gulfport senior right-hander Travis McNett threw a no-hitter as Gulfport beat Poplarville 14-1 in five innings Monday night at the Pearl River CC tournament in Poplarville.
McNett struck out seven batters in five innings on his way to his first win of the season.
"He threw his fastball, cutter and slider," Gulfport coach Jamie McMahon said. "He pitched. He located all three of his pitches."
