Top-ranked Twin Cedars no-hits Moulton-Udell

BUSSEY – Trace Embray and Garrett Pettyjohn combined on the six-inning no-hitter for the Sabers in top-ranked Twin Cedars’ 10-0 win over Moulton-Udell Thursday night in Bluegrass conference baseball action in Bussey.

No. 1 (1A) Twin Cedars used the long ball to start the game and to end it. Corey Harrell’s two-run homer in the first staked the Sabers to the early lead. Hunter Embray’s two-run shot with two outs in the sixth ended the contest.

“The pitch looked so good coming in and I was able to stay back and put a good swing on it,” said Harrell. “It was my best swing of the game.”

Embray issued a one-out walk to Logan Mittchell in the first, then promptly picked him off first. He would have two strikeouts in the top of the second before his teammates put a four spot on the board in the bottom of the inning.

Brent Parker doubled in the Sabers’ first run of the inning and would score on an Eagle throwing error. Coy Moore and Otis Roby each had RBI singles as part of the four-run output. Three of the runs were unearned.

Embray, who will just be a sophomore in the fall, was being handled behind the plate by his older brother Hunter.

“We’re brothers, so I guess we don’t always agree, but he listens when I tell him something,” said Hunter Embray. “It’s really fun though.”

Trace issued a two-out walk in the third, but the runner was stranded. He would issue a lead-off walk in the fourth, but would close out the inning and his night’s work with two strikeouts.

Embray left the game without yielding a hit to M-U.

Coach told me before the game that we would probably use another pitcher,” said Embray (Trace). “I had confidence in Garrett (Pettyjohn). It’s the second combined no-hitter I’ve been involved in this season.”
