LAKE CITY - Ellsworth’s Isaac Hines threw a six-inning no-hitter Thursday in a 12-0 victory over Lake City.
Hines didn’t walk anyone and didn’t strike any hitters out, but did work ahead in the count most of the game. Hines threw first-pitch strikes to 15 of the 19 hitters he faced. He also threw 39 of his 50 pitches for strikes. Hines came within an error of a perfect game.
Hines got run support early on as the Panthers (3-0, 2-0 Middle Border) put up three runs in the first inning and built a 6-0 lead after the third inning. Tyler Marson went 2-for-3 with two RBI. Jacob Betthauser drove in three runs and had a triple and a double. James Georgakas had two RBI and Chandler Flynn had three RBI.
Ellsworth took advantage of five Tigers errors and nine walks. The Panthers added six runs in the sixth.
Ellsworth hosts Somerset tonight at the Brown Athletic Field in Hager City. First pitch is at 5 p.m. weather permitting. The Panthers play Tuesday at Baldwin-Woodville.
