Southwestern's Joseph Sanford struck out 12 and pitched a no-hitter, throwing 62 pitches in a near-perfect 20-0 win against visiting Reginald Lewis in a Baltimore City baseball game yesterday.
Sanford also contributed to his own cause by hitting a triple and driving in three runs. The Sabers were paced by Vernon Garrison, who went 4-for-4.
Southwestern committed an error, spoiling Sanford's bid for a perfect game. No pitcher from the city has pitched a perfect game since Poly's Dustin Jones in 1995.
No. 4 Eastern Tech 22, Carver A&T 0: Justin Whitlock and Jake Biedenback each hit a home run for the Mavericks (5-1) in a rout of the visiting Wildcats.
No. 3 St. Paul's 14, St. John's-Prospect Hall 3: Winner Nate Curd (4-2) went four innings, gave up three hits, two runs, one walk and struck out five for the host Crusaders (10-5).
No. 2 North County 5, Northeast 1: Beth Mullins (3-0) struck out nine and walked one in seven innings to lead the Knights (5-0) over the host Eagles (1-3).
No. 14 Dulaney 10, Catonsville 3: Notre Dame-bound Ryan Hoff's five goals - including three in the first half - led the host Lions (3-2) over the Comets (2-2).
