WASHINGTON, Va. -- Central junior Hayden Bauserman struck out 11 batters on the way to firing a no-hitter in Central's 13-0 baseball victory over Rappahannock County on Tuesday.
Bauserman was just one base runner short of a perfect game, as a Rappahannock County batter reached on an error in the first inning.
"He just had one of those days," Central coach Donn Foltz said. "We've been wasting performances like that from him all year. We finally got one."
Bauserman also had a big day at the plate in the six-inning game, shortened due to the 10-run mercy rule. Bauserman was 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs.
Also for Central (8-2, 4-0 Bull Run District), Cody Sager chipped in a 2-for-4 night with two RBIs.
Foltz said Bauserman's no-hitter was the first by a Central pitcher since former standout Daniel Hawkins accomplished the feat a few years ago.
R-MA 13, Highland 3, 6 innings
FRONT ROYAL -- Randolph-Macon Academy starting pitcher Griffin Duy provided much of his own backing offense in a 13-3 baseball victory over Highland School on Tuesday.
Duy was 3-for-4 at the plate with three RBIs and scored a pair of runs for the Yellow Jackets. On the mound, Duy fired all six innings in the mercy-rule shortened game. He allowed just two hits and no earned runs while striking out five.
Robert DeBerry added a 2-for-3 day with two runs scored, and Chris Bell was 1-for-2 with two RBIs for R-MA (1-3, 1-0 Delaney Athletic Conference).
Sherando 10, Kettle Run 0, 5 innings
STEPHENS CITY -- Host Sherando needed just five innings to put away visiting Kettle Run in non-district baseball action on Tuesday.
Warriors starting pitcher Adam Whitacre picked up the complete-game victory, allowing just one hit in the shutout. Whitacre struck out four and walked four.
Offensively, Chase Smallwood was 2-for-3 with a double and three RBIs to lead Sherando (8-0). Jacob Carney was 2-for-3 with an RBI, Reid Entsminger was 2-for-3 with two doubles and an RBI, and Justin Angel added a 2-for-2 day with a double for the Warriors.
Central 8, Rappahannock County 1
WASHINGTON, Va. -- Central starting pitcher Mary Wakeman fired a one-hitter to lead visiting Central to an 8-1 softball victory over Bull Run District rival Rappahannock County on Tuesday.
Sydney Plum was 2-for-4 with a triple and Katelin Kline was 2-for-4 with two runs scored to lead the Falcons.
