The junior southpaw Louisville commit threw a complete-game shutout, giving up just four hits and striking out 11 batters as Pleasure Ridge Park routed Jeffersontown, 9-0 Thursday afternoon. Nick Rucker and Dallas Glass both hit homeruns for the Panthers to lead the team to victory. The win keeps PRP unbeaten this season, improving its record to 6-0.

Schmeltz committed to the Cardinals last August after an unofficial visit to campus.
