Helwig pitches no hitter, drives in five as St. Martin’s wins (Ken Trahan)
St. Martin’s Episcopal handled Fisher 13-0 in a game shortened to five innings by the mercy rule.
The Saints scored single runs in the first and second innings before breaking it open with five runs in the third inning to make it 7-0. St. Martin’s added four runs in the fourth inning and finished it with two in the fifth.
It was the David Helwig show for St. Martin’s (2-2)
Helwig pitched a no-hitter, walking two and striking out eight in a terrific performance.
At the plate, Helwig provided all the offense he would need with two hits and five RBI.
Bryce Helwig had two hits and two RBI. Matthew Dufrene added a hit and two RBI. Alex Scheuermann had a hit and an RBI.
It was the second straight win for the Saints after opening the season with two losses.
In the WGNO Classic at Mike Miley Stadium, Newman scored an excellent 5-3 win over Northshore.
After the Panthers scored single runs in the top of the first and second innings, the Greenies erupted for five runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to take a 5-2 lead and it proved to be the difference. Northshore scored a run in the seventh inning but fell short.
Grayson Gallinghouse pitched six outstanding innings, allowing just two runs on one hit. Gallinghouse walked three and struck out five. IV Guillot came on in the seventh inning to pick up the save.
Will Robert had two hits and two RBI while Tucker Joseph had two hits, including a double and an RBI to pace Newman. Clayton Stevens and Will Zurik each added an RBI.
David Cantrelle, Tyson Hailey and Jordan Fugate each drove in a run for Northshore. Joshua Matt took the loss for the Panthers.
