MJ's Boston no-hits Gallatin
Apr 17, 2007 12:00 am
GALLATIN — On a drizzly night, B.J. Boston dried up Gallatin's bats.
The Mt. Juliet right-hander hurled a five-inning no-hitter Friday night as the Golden Bears blasted the Green Wave 13-0.
The senior struck out eight and walked two to bring his record to 3-2.
Mt. Juliet accumulated nine hits, including a grand slam homer by Josh Cotham in the first and an RBI double in the third, both six-run innings.
Taylor Hill drove in a run on two singles while Dustin Murphy racked up an RBI double and Caleb Knox a run-scoring single. Tyler Carr, Jeff Murphy and Ryan Overstreet each singled as the Bears moved to 15-7 for the season and 3-1 in District 9-AAA.
The Green Wave, in their first year under former Lebanon coach Scott Hunt, fell to 19-7, 2-3.
Mt. Juliet will host Wilson Central at 7 p.m. tonight in a makeup of Wednesday's rainout.
Friendship wins on the road
BAXTER — Friendship Christian came from behind to beat former rival Upperman 8-3 Friday night.
The Bees led 3-1 through three innings before Friendship scored three times in the fifth and seventh to hand Stephen Pryor the win.
Jessie Coe went 3-for-3, including a double, with three runs scored and two runs batted in. G.L. Waynick went 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored as Friendship finished with nine hits.
Pryor pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowing three runs [all unearned] on four hits and five walks with five strikeouts. Brian Cravens pitched the final 1 1/3 frames, walking one, for the save as the Commanders climbed to 12-10.
These teams were rivals in the region tournament when Upperman was a Class A power during the '80s and '90s.
Friendship is next scheduled to play at 5 p.m. Tuesday at Hendersonville's Drakes Creek Park against Merrol Hyde.
Lebanon rained out at Greer Stadium
Rain forced postponement of Friday's high-school baseball game between Lebanon and Franklin County at Nashville's Greer Stadium.
Proceeds from the game are to benefit the family of Southside student Nathan Nokes, who is battling a brain tumor. Vouchers from pre-game sales may be used at any Nashville Sounds game.
Lebanon assistant Rusty Harrod said fellow assistant Charlie Lowery, who has been spearheading the Nokes fundraiser, would talk with the Sounds on Monday about rescheduling the game. Harrod said it is possible the game could be moved to Veterans Field.
The Blue Devils are scheduled to host Gallatin today for a noon junior-varsity and a 2 p.m. varsity game at Veterans Field.
