This time it’s from Friday Saturday starter Chris Hanson:
Chris Hanson threw the Indians’ second “no hitter” of the season Saturday as Keller trounced Northwest 11-0. Chris pitched 5 innings in a game shortened by the high school mercy rule allowing no hits, no runs, and just three base runners. Hanson struck out 7 Northwest batters while allowing only three Texans to reach base via a walk, an error, and a hit by pitch
The Indians scored 11 runs on 13 hits. Max Muncy led the Indian attack going 3 for 3 with 2 home runs and a double. Muncy also scored 2 runs and had 5 RBI for the game. Jordan Stafford continued his hot hitting going 3 for 3 with 3 singles, 2 runs scored, and 2 RBI while Cody Mills went 2 for 2 with a triple, 2 runs scored, and 2 RBI. Caleb Barker also had a multi-hit game going 2 for 3 with two singles and 2 runs scored.
The Indians started the scoring in the bottom of the first inning when Stafford led off the inning with a single, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Wade Stramp, went to third on a wild pitch, and later scored on an RBI groundout by Reid Coover. Muncy added the second run of the inning with a home run over the center field fence.
Keller scored 6 more runs in the bottom of the second inning. Zac Wymer got things started with a single up the middle. Barker followed with a single to left before Mills lined a triple into the right center field gap to knock in both Wymer and Blaid Sourjohn who was running for the catcher, Barker. Stafford followed with a single to knock in Mills and Coover singled to put runners on first and third before Muncy unloaded with his second home run of the game over the fence in right center to give Keller an 8-0 lead.
The Indians scored 3 more times in the bottom of the third inning. Barker singled to left to start the inning and Mills followed with another single to put runners on first and second. Stafford then hit his third single of the night to knock in one run and Stramp followed with a sacrifice fly to right to drive in the second run of the inning. Coover reached base on a fielder’s choice and Muncy followed with a double to the left field corner to score Coover for Keller’s final run of the game.
With the win, Keller improves to 13-3 on the season and 3-1 in district play.
The game last night was delayed until today due to the wind and cold. Hey, when my son played, they never delayed a game for cold! I remember watching a game during the Baylor Tournament when it was sleeting and the game continued. Coach Stramp must be getting soft……
