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.
