BASEBALL: Lots of outstanding pitching efforts dot early local prep campaign |
Metro Detroit’s pitching prowess on the prep baseball diamond has been on full display in the early part of the season, with a series of ace hurlers from around the area registering dynamite performances toeing the slab recently.
Four no-hitters were thrown on Monday alone.
Tyler Weed of Livonia Clarenceville spun a no-no, sending seven opposing batters down swinging to lift the Trojans to an 8-0 defeat of Dearborn Fordson.
Ortonville Brandon‘s Max Wardell and Holly’s Joel Perry each tossed no-no’s as their respective clubs tangled in a twin-bill, Wardell striking out 10 in a 5-0 win in the opener and Perry fanning six in a 4-0 victory in the night-cap.
