Baseball Roundup: Tuesday, April 16

Walter Johnson 3, Churchill 0: Gus Gill threw a no-hitter, striking out 13 and walking one in seven innings to lead the Wildcats over the host Bulldogs on Tuesday.

Churchill loaded the bases with one out in the second inning on two errors and a walk, but Gill struck out the next two batters to get out of the jam with his shutout intact. The Bulldogs’s only other base runner of the game reached on an error by shortstop Justin Hom with two outs in the third inning. Gill then retired the last 13 batters in order, striking out the side in the bottom of the seventh inning to seal the no-hitter.

Zeke Green was 3-for-3 and scored two runs for Walter Johnson, both on wild pitches. Hom knocked in Kohei Ishida with a triple to right field in the fifth inning for the Wildcats other run.

Gill, a senior, is now 2-1 on the season with a 1.97 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 21 1/3 innings pitched.

Bethesda-Chevy Chase 13, Wootton 12: Joe Feldman drove in the tying run with one out in the bottom of the seventh inning and scored two batters later on a double by Cobi Furcolo to give the Barons a walk-off win over the visiting Patriots.

Furcolo had four hits on the day and Andrew Brilliant was 2-for-3 with a home run, three RBI and three runs scored for B-CC.

Kevin Mooney was 3-for-3 with a double, two walks, three runs scored and two RBI for Wootton.
