April 25, 2019 GMT

HUNTINGTON — Trey Straub pitched a no-hitter Wednesday to lead Huntington to a 6-0 Mountain State Athletic Conference win over Riverside at Cook-Holbrook Field. Straub pitched seven innings and although he walked seven batters struck out five and got defensive help to preserve the no-hit shutout.

“I threw a lot of balls, but I got to give a shout out to my defense,” Straub said. “Grant (Beckett), Jacob (Poindexter) and Ethan (Proctor)made some great plays to help me out.”

Huntington coach Danny Harbert said Beckett made a diving catch in right field to deny a hit in the top of the seventh inning. Poindexter snared another potential hit in left field to keep the Warriors hitless.

At the plate, Evan Juniper tripled in a run and scored twice to aid the offense. Beckett had one hit in the game and drove in four runs.
