Nelson Nearly Misses No-Hitter for Granville

Nelson didn't give up a hit until the bottom of the seventh. The junior went the distance, striking out 13 and not allowing a walk.

Granville plated a run in the top of the fourth on an RBI single from Brent Perry.

Alex Torres blasted a home run in the seventh to increase the Golden Horde lead, and it was all Nelson needed.
