LATE THURSDAY

HERITAGE SCHOOL 12, GRIFFIN CHRISTIAN 0, FIVE INNINGS: The Hawks improved to 2-1 as Luke smith, Brian McKinney and Logan Betts combined on a no-hitter that came one at-bat shy of a perfect game.

The trio struck out nine of 16 crusaders with Griffin christian’s lone baserunner coming on a hit batsman.

Smith started and went three innings while gaining a comfortable 9-0 edge thanks to a first-inning rally that included his two-run single.

Trevor Henson got the Hawks on the scoreboard with a 2 rBi hit of his own prior to smith’s single. Brad Macke, who reached on an error to lead off the bottom of the first, also drove in two more runs before Henson polished off his second rBi hit of the inning.

Harrison Holland capped off the victory with an rBi double in the fifth.

Heritage returns to play today in a trip to Golden Park in columbus to play Bes- semer, Ala.
