Cherry Valley-Springfield lefty Brett Adams threw a no-hitter Thursday as the host Patriots beat Edmeston, 3-0, in a Tri-Valley League baseball game.

"He was dominant," CV-S coach Ed Dubben said of Adams, who struck out 12, walked one and hit a batter. "We had some good defense behind him, too. His fastball had all kinds of movement. We didn't even have to go to the breaking ball at all. He was just overpowering."

The Patriots got all their runs with two out in the third inning. Alec Denninger lined a single before Spencer Supak reached on a fielding error. Both advanced on a passed ball before Tristan Fralick hit an RBI triple. Fralick then scored on an error.

Zak Ruffles allowed eight hits but took the loss for Edmeston.

"Zak pitched a good game, too," Dubben said. "He got a lot of help from his defense. It was a very intense game. It is nice to have a game like that."

Scott Stiles went 2-for-4, Alec Denninger finished 3-for-4 and Fralick went 2-for-3 with three RBIs for CV-S, (3-3, 3-2) which hosts Franklin on Monday.

In the bottom of the inning, Travis Woods grounded to shortstop and ended up on second after a throwing error, then took third on a passed ball. Williams followed with an RBI groundout to shortstop, snapping a 3-all tie.

Shelton gave up a leadoff single to Tyler Hymers in the seventh but retired the next three batters. After two straight strikeouts and a steal by Hymers, Shelton (5-0) secured the pitching victory by diving to catch Austin Gullow's short pop up about halfway up the first-base line.

Barnhart struck out seven, walked three and hit a batter in 5 2/3 innings. He also gave up a three-run homer to Snyder, a right-handed batter who cleared the fence in right-center field in the fifth inning to tie the score.

Sidney 12, Afton 4

Dashon Boyles homered to cap Sidney's nine-run seventh as the Warriors rallied from a 4-3 deficit for a Midstate Athletic Conference victory.

"We kind of blew up," said Afton coach Ron Rapp, whose starter, Josh Davy, reached his pitch count after six innings and was relieved by batterymate Josh Austin. "It was a combination of things. They earned the tying and go-ahead runs, but after that, it was all errors and walks. (Sidney's) Billy Kozak rounded the bases on a hit to my shortstop. It was just overthrow, overthrow, overthrow."

Winning pitcher Dylan VanPelt struck out five in a six-hitter. He also had two hits and two runs for Sidney, which finished with 11 hits.

Cameron Oswald homered in the first inning for Afton (1-7, 0-4), which hosts Harpursville today.
