Ritchey no-hits BG in semifinal game

Curve Classic roundup

From Mirror reports

Rece Ritchey tossed a five-inning no-hitter, missing a perfect game only because of Danny Carrieri’s fourth-inning walk, to pitch Huntingdon past Bishop Guilfoyle Catholic in the 16th annual Curve Classic semifinals at Peoples Natural Gas Field on Saturday.

Nick Holesa went 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles and four RBIs for the Bearcats.

In the other semifinal, Altoona’s Matt Hartman went 3-for-4, drove in four runs, scored two more and picked up the save on the mound in the Mountain Lions’ 11-8 victory over Chestnut Ridge.

Leadoff man Owen Kravetz had two hits and scored three runs for Altoona.

Brodie Harbaugh had a pair of hits, scored two runs and drove in another for Ridge.

Earlier in the day, Forest Hills edged Hollidaysburg in a consolation game on Brycen Rearick’s walk-off suicide squeeze that gave the Rangers a 3-2 win.

Garrett Krazter had a two-run double for the Golden Tigers in the first inning, and Forrest Wolfhope went 3-for-3 with a pair of RBIs for the Rangers.

Andrew Lazor’s walk-off double in the bottom of the eighth inning gave Northern Bedford a 7-6 victory over Central in the morning’s other consolation game.

Lazor finished with three hits, two RBIs and scored two more runs. Thad Leidy went 4-for-4 for the Black Panthers, and Case Donaldson scored three runs.

Brady Nicewonger homered and drove in a pair of runs for the Scarlet Dragons, and Casey Walters went 2-for-3 and scored a run.
