Graman no-hits Cougars

ELNORA — Despite playing under a beautiful blue sky with temperatures around 80 degrees for the first pitch, North Daviess’ baseball season continued to be a struggle.

The Cougars (6-10) dropped their fifth straight game in a 10-0 six-inning loss to North Knox (7-9) behind a no-hitter from Christopher Graman.

Graman struck out five and his lone walk didn’t come until the the sixth inning. The Cougars didn’t hit the ball out of the infield until senior Alex Wittmer’s flyout to center field for the final out of the fourth.

“We aren’t swinging the bats really well,” said North Daviess coach Zach Stoll. “Our fans and players could say that. We had a lot of the same guys struggling that came back from last year. We were roughly 50, 60 points higher as a team than where we are now. It’s been frustrating for us as coaches and my guys are frustrated too. I think it’s building and it’s affecting the other two phases of the game.”

Wittmer, who started the game on the mound for North Daviess after an extended rest from arm pain. The Warriors jumped on the southpaw from the beginning. Hunter Jones reached on a dropped third strike, Jordan Meurer followed with a single. Jones and Meurer both scored after a throwing error on shortstop Darin Raber to give North Knox a 2-0 lead.

After a scoreless second, North Knox added three runs on four hits and once again Jones and Meurer were in the middle of it all as both came around to score on a two-run double from Luke McKinnon. Graman made it 5-0 in third with an RBI single. With two outs in the third, Wittmer exited with a re-injury of his left arm as he was replaced by Andrew Steffey.
