No-hitter no problem for Knights

The Brandon Knights didn’t need a hit to win their first game at the western Canadian Midget AAA baseball championship on Thursday in Chilliwack, B.C.

The Knights were no-hit by a pair of Saskatoon Diamondback pitchers, but managed to sneak a sixth-inning run across the plate for a 1-0 victory.

Bradley Schoonbaert scored in unconventional fashion, reaching base on a dropped third strike, advancing to third on a pair of fielder’s choices, then scoring on an error.

Meanwhile, Mitch Lyall and a pair of Brandon relievers took care of business on the mound. Lyall struck out five in 4 2/3 innings, allowing only two hits and a walk. Reliever Aaron Pugh gave up two hits and two walks in 1 1/3 innings, but also struck out three to help him hand a 1-0 lead to Brad McLeod, who hurled a perfect seventh for the save.

The Knights play twice today.
