By JIM LINETTE ( , Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Kyle Arjona pitched six scoreless innings in Cape Coral's combined no-hit 4-0 victory over crosstown rival Mariner Friday night.

Arjona (5-0) did not allow a hit and struck out nine Tritons. Tyler Tognarine pitched the seventh to preserve the shutout.

"The fact we threw a no-hitter," said Seahawks coach Mike Gorton. "That's been our MO all season, pitching well. Lately we've been stringing together hits and that's a positive. Gradually, we're getting better and our hitting is catching up with our pitching."
