Brewer pitcher throws no hitter to open district play

Brewer pitcher Alexander Pina threw the game of his young life on Monday night as he and the Bears opened up district play in style.  Pina tossed a complete game no hitter shutout as he led the team to a dominating 12 – 0 victory over Boswell.  Pina struck out nine batters, while giving up no hits and just three walks.

The defense played flawlessly behind Pina, doing their part and playing errorless baseball to help preserve the no hitter.  The offense, something that hasn’t come alive in some of Brewer’s early season tournament outings, also came up big in the game.  Brewer had a monster 8 run inning in the second, while adding 4 more in the fourth.

The Bears have made great strides so far this season as they’ve worked their way through some tough tournaments, and its clear that second year head coach Brad Hill has them ready for district play.  The next district game is Tuesday night at 7:00 p.m. against Birdville at Birdville High School.
