Cameron Farmer broke up a no-hitter and set the table for the game-winning run in the seventh inning Thursday night as Ida Baker clipped Cape Coral 1-0 in the final round of the Seahawks' Early Bird Tournament at Terry Park
Starting pitcher Daniel Korchick pitched three scoreless innings for the Bulldogs with Jordan Pinto picking up the win with four scoreless innings of relief. The two allowed a combined seven hits and fanned four batters.
In the Bulldogs' last at-bat, C.J. Schrowe drew a one-out walk to start the scoring rally. With two runners on, Farmer broke up the no-no with a single. That brought Darren Latore to the plate with the bases loaded. Facing a 2-1 count, a wild pitch allowed the winning run to score.
"It was a good win for us," said Bulldogs coach Bob Vandeventer.
The Bulldogs (1-2) play at Island Coast next Wednesday. The Seahawks play at Immokalee on Tuesday.
