KNOBLAUCH ONE-HITS STARS
WOODBURN—Carter Knoblauch took a nohitter deep into the seventh inning Tuesday and was one strike away from the outstanding feat before Nate Muselman spoiled the senior’s day with an infield single. Woodlan won the game 3-0 when Knoblauch struck out the next batter for the final out.
The Woodlan starter struck out 12 across seven innings and walked two. Two additional runners reached on two Warrior errors.
The standout performance somewhat overshadowed a fine pitching performance by the Stars, who got 3.2 innings out of Owen Wanner and 2.1 one-hit shutout innings from Muselman.
Woodlan got to Wanner in the third after stranding a runner in each of the first two innings. Knoblauch started the rally with a single but made an out at home when he was gunned down by Gavin Myers and tagged out by A.J. Dull. The Warriors later scored two runs in the inning with two outs, with both coming from wild pitches.
The loss dropped South Adams to 9-8 on the season and 0-3 in the ACAC, while Woodlan moved to 3-1.
