Junior Tucker Perry shined in Waccamaw’s Region VIII-AA opener on Thursday.
Perry tossed a no-hitter and struck out nine as the Warriors took down Mullins 12-0 in five innings.
“He pounded the zone all night, kept them off balance and were able to play good defense behind him,” Waccamaw coach Jeff Gregory said of Perry, who allowed just two baserunners. “Nine strikeouts is not too bad for the region opener. He’s going to throw in in all the big games for us.”
Wes Lee went 2-for-3 and drove in three, and Connor Eckert was 1-for-2 with three runs scored for the Warriors, who will travel to take on Ridge View on Saturday at 6:30 p.m.
“We’re coming off the Coastal Invitational and we defeated some high level of competition. We’re trying to stay focused and just realize we’re all young,” Gregory said. “Every postition was replaced after last year, so we’re taking it one game at a time; it’s all we can do.”
