Kevin Moore leads CVCC to mercy-rule shortened no-hitter

FROM STAFF REPORTSFebruary 1, 2014 

Kevin Moore had an excellent day on the mound for Chattahoochee Valley Community College Saturday. He was the key component in the Pirates’ first no-hitter in seven years in a mercy-rule game shortened to five innings, as CVCC opened up the 2014 baseball season with a pair of wins in a doubleheader against LaGrange College Saturday.

CVCC won the first game 5-1 and the second game 16-0.

“We pitched well today,” coach Adam Thomas said. “We jumped out to a 3-0 lead (in Game One) and stayed in control late.”

Tyler Lynn and Cam Sperry each went 2-3 with two RBIs and a double in Game One for the Pirates.

The winning pitcher was Hunter Mitchell, who went 4 2/3 innings giving up one run on four hits with five strikeoutss and one walk.

It was Moore that made the biggest impact on Game Two. He gave up no runs, no hits and only two walks in four innings of work. Mitch Shelby pitched the final inning while preserving the no-hitter.

“Kevin was outstanding,” Thomas said. “He’s a University of Alabama signee, and his stuff is good. Every time he goes out he has that potential.”

On the offensive side for CVCC Jake Maziar went 3-4 with a home run and five RBIs, James Cunningham went 2-3 with a home run and three RBIs and John Holland went 2-2 with two RBIs and a double.

The Pirates had a 10-run first inning in Game Two and controlled the contest from there. CVCC would end up with 14 hits in the nightcap.

CVCC (2-0) will host Jefferson Davis today at 2 p.m.
