BEAVER TOWNSHIP – One mistake, one bad pitch, or a single heads-up play could end up becoming the difference maker in a victory and a defeat in baseball.

Even more so when a pair of quality pitchers toe the rubber in a Northeast-8 contest. A heads up play by South Range’s Logan Cormell turned a steal of third into a score Friday evening and helped the Raiders shutout the Lakeview Bulldogs 1-0 to remain perfect on the season.

South Range junior Billy Skripac was dominant, fanning ten Bulldogs and tossing a no-hitter through five innings. Lakeview senior Blaine Barr was stellar himself by recording four strikeouts and allowing five hits.

“After the first couple innings you kinda had the feeling it was going to be a pitchers’ duel. I thought (Barr) threw very well, and I thought that Billy was up to the task to match.” South Range coach Jim Hanek said. “He did a tremendous job, he was able to get ahead of hitters, was able to throw off-speed pitches in fast ball counts, and really locate well.”

Baserunners weren’t easy to come by as both starting pitchers kept hitters off-balance on a cool evening, with spouts of rain fading in and out at South Range high school.

Lakeview’s best opportunity to plate a run came in the top of the fourth, when senior Cal Rinck drew a lead-off walk, eventually stealing second, then advancing to third on an error. With no outs, the Bulldogs eyed a potentially big inning, but Skripac made a major response, setting down the next three hitters with strikeouts.

“I knew I had the stuff to get the next three batters down, with a tight ball game like this, everything matters,” Skripac said. “It’s really the importance of playing a clean game in the field and just doing your job as a hitter.”

The little things make a colossal difference on the final box score, as shown in the bottom of the fifth when Cormell made a heads up play to steal a run on what was supposed to be a sacrifice bunt attempt. He led off the inning with a double to right field that went over the head of Lakeview’s Nate Fox, putting the Raiders (9-0) in scoring position quickly.

“As soon as I pressed the throw from the catcher, I saw it go past and I popped right up and ran home,” Cormell said. “This win boosts our confidence, that was a good team, but it just gives us confidence to win more games and play how we play.”

Skripac wasn’t aware he had a no-no going through five innings, but Lakeview (6-3) senior Jake Wilms broke the no-hitter with a liner up the middle with one out in the sixth for the Bulldogs only hit of the contest.

“I didn’t even know, I was just focused on not walking people, it’s not there in front of my head, I’m just out there trying to win a ball game.” Skripac said with a laugh

Lakeview coach Cam Carson doesn’t view it as a moral victory, believing that his team had their opportunities, but found plenty of praise for Barr, who has only allowed one earned run through three appearances.

“Proud of what Blaine was able to do, it was his second start of the year, and both starts kinda went that way, so he’s done a really nice job for us,” Carson said. “We always feel confident when he’s on the mound, so we always feel like we have a chance to win.

“He just kinda gets up there and does his thing, and he doesn’t really let anything bother him. He’s in his own headspace when he gets on the mound, the guys behind him play hard for him, so you couldn’t ask for anything more.”
