The Hawks got their second no-hitter in a week, this time Thomas Barry shutting out the opponent and striking out six. He improved to 5-0 on the mound, while Viera improved to 11-2 for the season.
One week earlier, Jordan Kaplan no-hit Sebastian River in a 5-0 win, striking out 12.
Also in the Harmony win, Viera coach Bob Doty hit a milestone by picking up his 100th career victory. Doty’s first win came in 2012, when the Hawks beat Cocoa, 12-0 on Feb. 13.
