Osaka Gakuin University's Hiroshi Kobayashi tossed a no-hitter against Ryukoku University today.  He faced a total 31 batters, four over the minimum (two walks, an error, and a dropped third strike).  Kobayashi struck out 11 batters and retired 11 on grounders, 2 on foul outs, and 8 on outfield fly balls.  He threw a total 120 pitches.  You can view the boxscores (in Japanese) at the Kansai 6 University Baseball League site.

Kobayashi is the 8th pitcher in Kansai 6 history to toss a no hitter.  The last pitcher to toss a no hitter was Naohisa Sugiyama (currently on the Hanshin Tigers) during the 2000 Spring league.
