One day after junior left-hander Cam Lueder tossed a no-hitter, Mitchell Swartwood nearly made it two in a row as the Blue Raiders rolled to their second victory in as many outings this season.
A fifth-inning single was all Swartwood allowed as host Trumansburg rolled past Groton, 21-2, Friday morning in Interscholastic Athletic Conference action. Alex Shippy and Glen Addicott provided the offense for the Blue Raiders, combining for six hits and seven RBIs as the home team put the game away early with nine runs in the first inning.
Shippy went 4-for-4 with a double and three RBIs while Addicott was 2-for-4 and drove in three runs.
Anthony Goodsell broke up Swartwood’s no-hit bid for the Indians (0-1), who scored single runs in the fifth and sixth innings. The Blue Raiders were ahead, 12-1, after 4 innings and scored eight more runs in the fifth.
