Brady tosses no-hitter, second of his career

D.J. Brady was mere inches away from throwing a perfect game for the Douglas baseball team Saturday afternoon against South Tahoe.

Brady hit one batsmen, which proved to be the lone blemish on what was otherwise a spectacular pitching gem for the Tiger senior as he threw a no-hitter in a 2-0 win over the Vikings in the opener of a doubleheader.

It was the second no-hitter of Brady's career, although his first in a complete-game as he no-hit Hug in five innings last season.

He struck out 15 and walked none in the game while improving to 4-2 on the year.

Nate Whalin, Phil Mannelly and Tyler May each collected one hit with Mannelly doubling and May providing the game's only RBI.

Douglas completed the season sweep of the Vikings and ran its win streak to nine game in the second game of the doubleheader, pummeling South Tahoe 21-4.

Whalin picked up the victory on the mound, his first of the season, while striking out three, walking three and scattering three hits.

The Tigers had no shortage of power at the plate, pounding out 13 hits. Mannelly went 3-for-3 with a double, a triple and two RBIs, Ryan Pruitt went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBIs and Ryan Laing doubled with two RBIs.

Ryan Guzman and Cory Eilers each drove in two runs and Jordan Hadlock doubled.

Brady, Whalin, Niko Saladis, Hadlock and Jeff White each had one RBI.

Douglas, currently ranked No. 6 in the Sierra Nevada Sports Media Poll, improved to 12-7 overall and 9-3 in Sierra League play.


The Tigers split four games last week, losing to Manogue and then taking two of three from South Tahoe.

Wyatt Graham struck out three and Spike Neri struck out two in an 8-5 loss to Manogue Wednesday. Jeff Nady went 2-for-4 in the loss to lead the Tigers at the plate.

Troy Torres struck out two in a 14-4 win over South Tahoe Thursday as Ethan Gangwish and Zach McFadden each collected two hits.

The Tigers dropped a 4-3 game in 12 innings to the Vikings Saturday, despite Tim Rudnick's three hits and Beau Davis' two hits.

Rudnick struck out eight in an 8-3 win in the second game of the doubleheader as Davis, Nick Adams and Austin Ovard each had two hits.
