Left-handed starter Tanner Renegar and reliever Billy Larrimore combined to pitch the second consecutive no-hitter for the Baker Bulldogs Friday night, a 3-0 win over Cape Coral.
Renegar (2-0) pitched five innings and struck out two. Larrimore finished the last two innings and fanned four.
Isaac Struense's two-run single in the first inning provided all the insurance the Bulldogs would need. Their first run scored on a wild pitch.
Ida Baker senior Tanner Renegar pitched five hitless, scoreless innings Friday night in a 3-0 win over Cape Coral. Renegar and teammate Billy Larrimore combined to toss the team’s second consecutive no-hitter. More photos are available online at: cu.cape-coral-daily-breeze.com.
The result is a reversal of the game between the city rivals in the championship match of Cape's Early Bird Tournament seven days ago. Cape won that one 2-1.
The Bulldogs (4-1) host Riverdale on Tuesday while the Seahawks (2-1) visit Mariner Tuesday.
