The baseball team at Rhinebeck, N.Y., has had to do more with less this season. Not only did the Hawks move up a class from C to B, but they began the season with a roster of only 10 varsity players. Senior right-hander Kory Hutchins is doing his best to ease that transition, allowing only five hits in his four starts this season.
On Monday, he threw his second no-hitter of the season in a 5-0 defeat of Millbrook, striking out 12 batters. He also went 2-for-3 with a homer and three RBI in the game.
"He was completely dominant," Rhinebeck coach Bill Carney told the Poughkeepsie Journal. "He had everything working and was hitting his spots."
In his previous no-hitter, Hutchins struck out 15 in a 7-0 defeat of Pine Plains on April 10. His performance leads the American Family Insurance ALL-USA Performances of the Week. The rest of the ALL-USA Performances:
