Amateur Baseball: Rockets shoot down Rails behind Knott's one-hitter
RAYMOND -- Tyler Knott took a no-hit bid into the ninth inning as Raymond beat Willmar 6-1 in a Cornbelt South League amateur baseball game Tuesday.
The game was scheduled to be played in Willmar, but recent rains forced the move to Raymond.
Knott struck out 14 batters and walked one in the win. Travis Koenen broke up the no-hitter with a single in the ninth. He also scored the only run for the Rails (5-4, 5-4) in the top of the sixth on three Rockets errors. He was hit by a pitch.
The Rockets (7-0, 13-2) scored twice in the third inning on a Tyler Steen sacrifice fly and a Zach Nelson out. Raymond added four more in the eighth on Mike Jeseritz's bases-loaded double, which scored three runs, and Jordan Smith's RBI single.
Jordan Olson went 7Xc innings on the mound for Willmar.
