The Dekalb Baron baseball team upped their record to 11-4 as they ran roughshod over the East Noble Knights on Thursday night, winning 10-0 in five innings. With the win, Dekalb moved to 1-1 in the NHC conference standings.
Junior Dylan Cagle tossed a no hitter for the Barons, only allowing 2 baserunners. Cagle was in command all night with a nice assortment of pitches.
Dekalb’s offense staked Cagle to an early lead, as they plated 6 runs in the opening frame. Doubles by Carter Stafford, Logan Shilling, Bayley Coleman, and Ty Rottger were all key in that first inning.
The Barons added 3 more runs in the 4th, and closed out the game with a run in the 5th.
Dekalb goes on the road for 4 games next week. They will be at Columbia City on Tuesday, at Homestead on Thursday, and then a DH at Manchester on Saturday will close out what promises to be a tough week of baseball for the Barons.
