BONNYVILLE — The Red Deer Sports World Braves won a pair of midget AA league games during the weekend, beating Camrose 9-0 and Bonnyville 7-6.

Starting pitcher Logan Marshall was the story of the game against Camrose, tossing a complete-game no-hitter while striking out seven.

A balanced attack saw Jayden Hutlet single twice, score once and add an RBI. Reid Stoyberg doubled, walked and scored once while Teagan Colonna singled, walked and scored twice. Alec Mitchell added a two-run single and Marshall had a double and scored once.

The Braves trailed Bonnyville 6-5 heading into the bottom of the sixth inning when Alex Heinzlmeir singled. Pinch runner Ty Galloway stole second, went to third on a passed ball and scored the tying run on Joe Ireland’s single.

Galloway took the mound in the top of the seventh, setting Bonnyville down in order.

In the bottom of the frame, Hutlet walked and Colonna singled, leaving runners on second and third following the throw. Stoyberg then drilled the first pitch through the drawn-in infield to plate the winning run.

Joe Ireland started on the mound, working three innings with relief from Hutlet and Jesse Kowalchuk prior to Galloway coming in.

The Braves ran their record to 14-1 with their next action Saturday in Lacombe.
