Ken Johnston, a 17-year-old right-hander, fired a no-hitter, struck out 13 and issued no free passes in a sparkling nine-inning complete game performanc­e as Saint Raphael Academy racked up its first win in the Eastern Division by routing Warren 7-1 at McCoy Stadium. The only run off Johnston came in the eighth inning on a fielder’s choice and three errors. Ray Gemma led the Saints’ 12-hit assault banging out a single, double and triple to drive in three runs, Ron Tomellini and Joe Falvey each collected two hits and Hank Marshall clouted a two-run triple.

Lefty Fred Pinocci and Bob Jacobs combined on a 1963

four-hitter with 11 strikeouts and three walks to pace Woonsocket to a 16-0 shutout over Sacred Heart Academy in Northern Division action. Villa Novan coach Gus Savaria’s youngsters hammered out 13 hits with three by Jim Moylan and two each by Tim Skiffingto­n, Tom Allaire and Bob Caron. Dick Bizier had two of the Beavers’ four safeties.

Brian Coleman hurled a three-hitter, fanned six, did 1973

not walk a batter and had a pair of singles carrying Tom’s Shamrocks to a 6-1 victory over Taylor Auto Body in a Darlington American Little League tilt. In Darlington National play, John Famigletti allowed three hits and whiffed nine while Mike Hall’s RBI single produced the game’s lone run as Walter’s Market edged Kallaher Oil 1-0. Pete Corrigan rapped out a single, double and triple to lead the attack for McCarthy’s Caterers in a 4-1 victory over the Bean Hill Tigers in a Woodlawn Senior League contest.
