Legion Baseball Roundup: Jergenson throws no-hitter for Morris
MORRIS — Bryce Jergenson tossed a no-hitter and VFW call-up Denner Daugherty went 4-for-4 to help Morris shut out Kerkhoven 10-0 Tuesday in its opener.
Jergenson did walk four batters, but recent Morris Area High School graduate struck out nine and got plenty of support in the six-inning contest.
Morris batted nine in a three-run first inning and a five-run fifth. Daugherty laced a two-run single in the first, singled in another run in the third and ended the game in the sixth with a one-out single that knocked in Noah Grove.
Corey Storck added RBI singles in the first and fifth, and Joey Dufault scored twice by supplying Morris with two singles. Also driving in runs in the fifth with singles were Ryan Dietz and Ryan Bowman.
Morris is at Brandon-Evansville on Thursday, while Kerkhoven will be playing its third game in four days on Thursday on the road against Eden Valley-Watkins.
