PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Four Washington State pitchers combined for the school's first no-hitter since 1985 , beating Stephen F. Austin 7-3 to cap a doubleheader sweep Sunday.

Cody Anderson (1-0), Joe Rosenstein, Isaac Mullins and Scotty Sunitsch teamed up to complete the 24th no-no in Washington State (6-4) history, and the fifth combined. The Cougars' last no-hitter came 32 years ago, when Kurt Waananen beat Rockford College in seven innings.

Washington State hadn't tossed a nine-inning no-no since Eric Wilkins beat Oregon State in 1976.

Anderson, a junior left-hander, allowed three unearned runs in six innings and struck out six in his first career win. Rosenstein followed with 1 1/3 relief innings, Mullins got the final two outs of the eighth and Sunitsch worked a scoreless ninth to finish Washington State's first combined no-hitter since David Wright and Roger Stein beat Idaho in 1974.

Shane Matheny drove in three runs, and Andres Alvarez had two RBIs for the Cougars.

Patrick Ledet (0-2) took the loss for Stephen F. Austin (4-9).
