Baseball: Thunder’s Connelly no-hits Becker 5-0

Zimmerman pitcher Kyle Connelly threw the second no-hitter of his career in a 5-0 victory over Becker on Friday.

The senior righthander struck out 10 batters and walked none. Two batters got aboard on  errors.

Connelly, who has three wins this year and 15 in his career,  also had a six-inning no-hitter as a sophomore.

He has thrown 11 straight no-hit innings this week. On Monday, he had a no-hitter for four innings against Milaca when that game was suspended by rain.

It was a strange two days for Becker (2-8), which lost 17-16 to Rogers on Thursday before getting no-hit by Zimmerman.

Cullen Sroka was 1-for-3 with an RBI and Tony Obinger was 2-for-2 for Zimmerman (4-7), which ended a four-game losing streak.
