Holy Angels senior throws perfect game

HOLY ANGELS 12, FARMINGTON 0: Lucas Long was perfect Tuesday. The senior righthander threw a perfect game while striking out 12 as the Stars shut out Farmington 12-0 in a Missota matchup that was shortened to five innings due to the 10-run rule. The only balls Farmington put into play were three groundball outs to second base in the fourth inning. Holy Angels (1-1) gave Long more than enough run support in the first inning, scoring six times.

BENILDE-ST. MARGARET’S 7, FRIDLEY 1: The Red Knights scored six runs in the top of the seventh inning, breaking a 1-1 tie, to win at Fridley. Winning pitcher Jimmy Heck went 2-for-4 at the plate. He allowed only two hits while striking out 10 in going the distance.

PRINCETON 5, BUFFALO 4: Kyle Norman singled home Delton Mattson from second base with one out in the top of the 11th inning for what proved to be the winning run as the Tigers outlasted the Bison in the Mississippi 8. Senior Eric Frauendienst pitched three scoreless innings in relief to pick up the victory.

SHAKOPEE 7, NEW PRAGUE 5: Starting pitcher Jordan Gunhus, an all-conference performer as a sophomore last season, did it all for the Sabers vs. the Trojans in Missota play. On the mound, the junior scattered three hits over five scoreless innings while striking out five. At the plate he was even more impressive, going 3-for-3 with 5 RBI — all of which came with two outs.
