Lebanon baseball stays hot with win over Hillcrest

Below is a box score of the game:

After a tough loss to No. 1 ranked Willard over the Spring Break on March 29, the Lebanon High School baseball team had some time off thanks to Mother Nature and responded with an 11-0 shutout win over the Hillcrest Hornets on Thursday afternoon in Springfield.
The game lasted just five innings, but the ‘Jackets recorded 11 hits while playing a perfect defensive game.
On the mound, seniors Blake Deckard and Austin Garrison combined to throw a no-hitter in the victory.
“It was an awesome job all the way around by our guys (on Thursday),” head coach Alex Weathermon said. “I want to give a huge shoutout to Blake Deckard and Austin Garrison on combining for a no-hitter. It was a phenomenal job by them to come in early and pound the zone.
“Offensively, it was one of the better days we have swung the bat. We normally struggle against slowing pitching, but we adjusted well.
The ‘Jackets (11-2 overall) were led by junior Braiden Lamontagne, who went 4-4 from the plate on Thursday, including a double and triple and 4 RBIs.
“It is awesome to see Braiden getting back to his true self,” said Weathermon. “I thought he had a great approach at the plate and got some huge hits.”
Chance Cromer and Cole Milliken also had multiple hits in the game for LHS, while Cole Dustin, Tony Myres, and Hoyt Honey each had hits of their own.
Lebanon will next play Catholic at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday at Oley Scott Field.
