Tyler Stevens pitched the one of the best games for the University of New Mexico baseball team in nearly 40 years.
Stevens, a 2014 graduate of Rocky Mountain High School, threw a one-hitter Sunday for the Lobos, their first since 1976.
In a complete game win over Air Force, Stevens had no walks and four strikeouts. The only batter who got a hit was erased trying to stretch a single into a double. He faced one batter over the minimum due to a couple New Mexico errors.
It was the freshman’s sixth career start and he now owns a 2-3 record and 2.67 ERA. For his effort, Stevens was named the Mountain West’s Pitcher of the Week.
Carl Stajduhar, also a 2014 Rocky Mountain graduate, had an RBI double in the win for New Mexico. Stajduhar is hitting .282 and is third with 21 RBI.
Windsor moving up in rankings: Riding a seven-game winning streak, Windsor is now ranked No. 4 in Class 4A in the CHSAANow.com boys lacrosse poll.
The Wizards are 8-2 before Monday night’s game at home against No. 6 Battle Mountain.
