School baseball: Villano hurls no-hitter
One walk kept Corinth junior Anthony Villano from perfection Friday in the Tomahawks’ 7-0 Adirondack League win over Salem at East Field in Glens Falls.
Villano issued that walk to the second batter he faced, and retired the next 20 Generals in Corinth’s second no-hitter in as many years.
“It was one of the best games I’ve seen pitched in high school baseball in a long, long time,” said Corinth coach Peter Sorbera. “He was very dominant tonight. His fastball was very live, and he mixed in a few curves and changeups.”
Villano, a first-year varsity player, struck out 11 in running his record to 3-0.
“Most of his strikeouts were with three pitches,” said Sorbera.
Villano threw 74 pitches, 61 of them for strikes. He also went 3-for-4 at the plate with two doubles, drove in a run and scored two times.
Corinth’s Zack Shippee hurled a no-hitter against North Warren last season in a 13-0 win.
