Phenomenal pitching helped the Outlaws baseball team close out league play with a 14-4 record and their first title since 2017.
Brody Duey threw his second no-hitter on the season, allowing one unearned run in an 11-1 five-inning game against Harrisburg.
On Friday, the Outlaws traveled to Harrisburg needing to win both games to secure a league title. Brody Fischer threw a complete-game shutout in game one, finishing at 7-0. Patrick Silva threw four innings and Landen Scott contributed an inning in a combined five-inning shutout in game two to secure the league title.
"In game one we had some timely hitting from Thomas Schuff as well as Diego Silva," said Coach Matt Hilgers. "Austin Dean, Diego Silva, Brody Fischer, Landen Scott, and Thomas Schuff all recorded multiple hits.
"In game two we really started hitting the baseball, scoring nine runs across the fourth and fifth inning. Brody Duey, Diego Silva, Kayl Mock, Thomas Schuff, and Brody Fischer all recorded multiple hits in game two. Kayl Mock had the big hit of the day hitting his first high school home run!"
The Outlaws defense has been a mainstay for the team throughout the season, and that continued through the week.
"Defensively we had great plays up the middle from Justin DeSemt and Hudson Beckwith all day on a field that created some challenging hops for us," Hilgers said.
The Outlaws will host a playoff game on Wednesday, May 24.
"We do not know who we play yet but will find out on Friday, May 19," Hilgers said.
