Meredith throws no-hitter for T’birds

RIPLEY – Chautauqua Lake’s Tyler Meredith threw a complete game, no-hitter in a 23-0 victory over Panama on Friday in CCAA West II high school baseball.

Meredith, a freshman southpaw, threw his second complete game victory of the season, striking out 10 and walking three. He was also the beneficiary of a solid defense, as no Panama runner reached second base.

Ryan Linnecke had two hits and three RBIs and Tyler Furlow added two hits in the win. Also for Chautauqua Lake, Ryan Stewart drove in four runs to pace the offense.

Starting pitcher Josh Eddy took the loss for the Panthers.
