Border Country Sports Blog-April 23rd
Good Morning! With the Border Country Sports Blog, I'm Keith Harrington.
After a fun vacation to Niagra Falls and Toronto I am back and ready to cover the local spring sports action. Today I am on the road to Williamstown, Massachusetts fo call a college baseball doubleheader. Then of course next week the local high school scene will heat back up with Spring Break over and schools back in session. The action will be fast and furious with the season ending in only about three weeks. Sprng sports goes by so quickly.
Here are some games from the past few days to catch up on.
Stewart and Tyler Lead TanaForts to Non-League Win
Drake Stewart and Bryce Tyler both had strong games on the mounrd and at the plate as Hartford-Fort Edward blanked Berne-Knox 7-0 in a non-league baseball game back on Thursday at Bob Wilkins Field.
Stewart started on the bump and pitched no-hitter for four innings. Stewart was dominant as he struckout 12 and didn't give up a walk in a perfect outing.
Tyler pitched the final three innings, giving up just two hits, striking out five and also not walking a batter.
Tyler was 2 for 3 at the plate with a double. Jimmy Lavin and Cole Gauthier both had hits for the TanaForts.
Hartford-Fort Edward put the game away early. The TanaForts scored three runs in the first and plated two more in the second. Stewart and Tyler took over from there, keeping the Bulldogs off the bases and the scorebaord.
Hartford-Fort Edward is now 3-3 on the season.
