Stony Brook Frankie Vanderka pitched his third career no-hitter in a 7-0 win over visiting Albany in Game 1 of an America East conference doubleheader Saturday, with 10 strikeouts, two walks and a hit batsman.

The MacArthur High School graduate previously no-hit NJIT in 2011 and Fordham in 2013. His three-hitter against LSU in 2012 advanced the Seawolves to the College World Series for the first time in school history.

"I knew around the seventh inning if I could get through the order one more time it could happen," said Vanderka, who threw 126 pitches.

The senior hit Matt Hinchy with a pitch in the second inning and walked batters in the fourth and eighth.

Stony Brook (8-9, 2-0) took the second game, 6-2.
