McCarty pitches shutout, SJO wins Invite

Spartans open with decisive whooping


Keegan McCarty brought the heat to the hill securing St. Joseph-Ogden's opening win at the annual SJO Baseball Invitational. The junior hurler collected 17 strikeouts in a complete game no-hitter letting the Spartans roll to a 9-0 victory this morning.

The win halted a two-game slide after the Spartans dropped a conference game earlier this week to Olympia and non-conference 2-1 walk-off heartbreaker to Charleston.

SJO tallied eight hits thanks to Zach Martini and Brayden Weaver who had two apiece. Martini led the team with three RBI.

Blake Primmer added insult to injury with a solo home run in the game.

Hayden Sheehan absorbed the loss for the Bulldogs.

Box Score
St. Teresa 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0-0-2
SJO . . . .  1 1 0 1 3 3 x 9-8-0


Opening momentum carries SJO to title


The Spartans moved just one game away from a 20-win season after defeating Tri-Valley in the title game for the four-team tournament, 7-1.

Out of the chute, SJO put four runs on the board in the first inning against the Vikings and never looked back.

Drew Coursey and Kaden Jacobs tallied two hits to cap Senior Day with the win.

The Spartans will play five games in the seven days starting Monday before heading into their regional semifinal game against Heritage on Wednesday, May 15, at Unity.

The full house schedule includes road games at Danville this Monday and Mattoon on Thursday. On Wednesday, SJO will host a make-up date with the Monticello Sages. The team then finishes out the regular season schedule with home contests against Salt Fork on Saturday and Olympia on Monday.

Box Score
Tri-Valley 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 1-  2-2
SJO . . . . 4 0 0 2 0 1 x 7-10-2
