Walsh gets no-hitter against Chittenango

Warriors get 21 K's from Pena in win over Grimes

Quickly, Pena atoned. With one out in the bottom of the seventh, Pena singled off Grimes reliever Chris Hendrick (who had replaced starter Ryan Gosson in the fifth) and immediately stole second and third base, racing home with the tying run on Walsh’s sacrifice fly.

And Pena kept pitching, into the ninth, where he ran his strikeout total to 21, the most by any Section hurler in a single game this spring.

Finally, with two out in the bottom of the ninth and Karleski on second base after a single and steal, Hendrick chose to pitch to Pena – and paid for it, Pena knocking a single that allowed Karleski to score the decisive run.
