STANFORD, Calif. – For the first time in over four years, Stanford softball can lay claim to a no-hitter.

Regan Krause wen the distance in a five-inning victory over Mount St. Mary's (2-4) on Friday night to throw the Cardinal's (11-2) first no-hitter since Kiana Pancino's against Army on Feb. 18, 2018. Krause didn't give up a hit over 16 batters faced, with a leadoff walk in the fifth inning being the only blemish on her stat line.

The sophomore stuck out four batters – inducing six flyouts and five groundouts for the win.

Stanford scored at least 10 runs for the second straight game after run-ruling Saint Mary's on Thursday night, 14-1. Emily Young was 2-for-3, Emily Schultz and Sydney Steele batted in a pair of runs, and Aly Kaneshiro's fourth inning home run propelled the Cardinal offense to another great showing at the plate.

Shultz began the scoring on a single to center field in the bottom of the second inning. The center fielder mishandled the ball allowing Hanna Matteson to reach home from first base – while Schultz ended up at third base on the play.

Stanford attempted a double steal with runners on the corners, but when the throw from the catcher sailed past the third baseman, Schultz had enough time to make it a 2-0 lead for the Cardinal.

Errors continued to prove costly for the Mountaineers in the third inning as Stanford added five runs for a 7-0 lead. Steele provided the biggest push for Stanford with a three RBI double to left field to plate Caelan Koch, Schultz and Chloe Doyle.

The Cardinal received all the run-support it needed in the fourth inning courtesy of a three-run home run from Kaneshiro.

Stanford hit .455 (10-for-22) on the night, including .429 with two outs and .400 with runners on base.

The DeMarini Invitational continues tomorrow with a doubleheader against Fresno State and Mount St. Mary's.
