ROCHESTER — Continuing a development of dominance on the mound from his earlier two begins, Rochester slinger Braden Hartley dazzled after a brief spring break layoff in opposition to Shelton, tossing a five-inning no-hitter in a 11-0 Warrior win Thursday night.
Hartley was dominant from starting to complete, placing out seven, letting simply three batters get on base, with two walks and one ball misplayed by a Warrior outfielder.
“Braden did a phenomenal job tonight,” Warriors coach Brad Quarnstrom mentioned. “This is what we expected from him this year, he’s been solid now his last three outings.”
Not to be fully outdone by Hartley’s efficiency on the mound, the Warrior bats took benefit of simply 5 hits and three Highclimber errors to attain 11 runs, turning most of their baserunning alternatives into runs.
Hayden Pietras had three RBIs on a 1 for two day on the plate, Tate Quarnstrom added two runs and a RBI on a double, and Ledger Anderson went 1 for two with three runs, an RBI, and a stroll.
“Especially after the spring break layoff, it was good to see,” Brad Quarnstrom mentioned of the offense. “We came out and had timely hits and good at-bats. That, along with the pitching, is a recipe for winning ball games.”
The Warriors (5-5, 2-3 2A EvCo) will look to win the season sequence with the Highclimbers Friday in Shelton at 4:30 p.m.
