Ridge View boys top Warriors 3-0

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

Austin Delp
ALTA - Kris Alesch pitched the second no-hitter in Ridge View history while striking out 15 Alta-Aurelia batters, and his Raptor teammates " really played well," said Coach Shannon Tesch, as Ridge View won a 3-0 victory here over a ranked Alta-Aurelia team.

Tesch said it was an "excellent game and a fun atmosphere to play in," adding that a 45 minute rain delay in the 5th inning "made it even more memorable."

The Warriors' Austin Delp performed pretty well on the mound himself, pitching 6 1/3 innings and giving up only three hits, while striking out seven. One of the Ridge View runs was unearned.

"Our pitching continues to be a bright spot for us," said Warrior coach Dan Wendel, " and Austin did a great job tonight.Their pitcher did a real good job of keeping us off- balance. We are still struggling to make contact ... we have faced some very good pitching to this point, and our bat speed looks sluggish. We had a couple of chances early in the game to score but we have had problems moving runners, bunting, and doing the little things that win games. Our hitting will come around and we just need to string a few hits together to take the pressure off. I think we are really over- thinking the game right now, and we have to trust ourselves and our ability to get back on track."

Austin Graff led Ridge View's attack at the plate with a 2 for 4 night and two RBI, while Chris Brosamle knocked in the other Ridge View tally.

Ridge View is now 2-0 on the season.
