Fighting for a MIAA B Conference baseball playoff spot, Our Lady of Mount Carmel routed Annapolis Area Country, Tuesday, as sophomore Jake Brack tossed a no-hitter in the five-inning run-rule contest, won by the Cougars, 10-0.
Brack struck out three Eagles in going the distance and watched as offense did the rest. His toughest inning was the fourth when he allowed the leadoff hitter to reach before his catcher, Billy Trout, gunned down a steal attempt for the first out. Back walked the next batter, but got out of the inning on a 6-4-3 double-play started by Jackson.
The Cougars started with single runs in the second and third, as Jordan Jackson and Bobby Simms each had RBI hits, with Simms connecting for a double.
Mount Carmel capped its scoring with a huge 8-run fifth inning. Stephen Thomas had a 2-run single and Austin Heid had a 3-run triple to fuel the inning. In addition, Mekhi Howard knocked in two more with a base hit.
Mount Carmel (7-8 overall) improved to 4-6 in the conference and now sit in sixth place, a half game in front of Park School for the final playoff spot. AACS (8-8 overall) is now 5-4 in the league where it sits in a 3-way tie for third place.
