By

The first no-hitter in the 30-year history of the prestigious Area Code Games happened Wednesday, according to Baseball America.

A trio of Southern California pitchers — Matthew Sauer, Sam Glick and Zachary Pettway — combined for 11 strikeouts in seven innings for the Milwaukee Brewers team in an 8-0 victory against the Chicago White Sox.

Sauer, a righthander from Righetti in Santa Maria, Calif., went three innings. Glick, a lefthander from El Toro, threw two innings, and Pettway, a righthander for Long Beach High, threw the final two.

The tournament for the upperclassmen wrapped up Wednesday.
