Bay Port (Green Bay, Wis.)
pitcher Ryan Frieder
couldn't catch a break Saturday.
As reported by the Green Bay Press Gazette
, Frieder fired a nine-inning no-hitter against North (Sheboygan, Wis.), but it went for naught as his Pirates lost 1-0. The winning run scored on an error in the ninth. Frieder ended with 12 strikeouts.
* The Minnesota state record book received a new addition when Orono (Long Lake, Minn.)
sophomore Jacob Flemmer
tied the mark for most hits in a single game. Flemmer had six hits in as many at bats late last week to become the third player in state annals to achieve the feat. The Star Tribune
reported all of the hits for Flemmer, the team's leadoff hitter, were singles.
* Page (Sand Springs, Okla.)
will be allowed to participate in the state playoffs, but will do so without coach Bill Hutson. Hutson was suspended as a penalty for the team scheduling more than the allotted amount of 23 regular-season games, according to the Tulsa World
. Page also will not be allowed to host a regional tournament this season.
"It was a clerical error on my part, but it wasn't something I did to give us a competitive advantage," Huston told the newspaper.
* Meanwhile, St. Frances Academy (Baltimore)
was not so fortunate, as incomplete paperwork with regard to two transfer students will keep them out of the postseason. As reported by The Baltimore Sun
, the Panthers, who had been 8-4, were forced to forfeit their first 12 games because of the unintentional error, essentially ending any postseason aspirations.
Commendably, St. Frances will continue to play its season with the two ineligible players, even though the upcoming games also will be forfeits.
“We’re going to concede the forfeits, so the kids can still play," St. Frances coach Brian Boles told the newspaper. “The other players didn’t want to rob them of the opportunity to play and didn't want to play without them."
