Brooks’ one-hitter powers Huskies past Cougars

SHINNSTON  — North Marion’s Skyler Brooks threw a one-hitter, Travis Smith hit a 3-run home run and the Huskies downed Lincoln, 13-1, Monday night.

The win for the Huskies comes after a weekend in which Vic Seccuro’s team split a doubleheader, winning the second game out of the two. The coach hoped that the win over the weekend propelled his team into the upcoming week.

Mission accomplished.

Just like in Saturday’s win, North Marion received a stellar performance on the mound from one of its young pitchers. Brooks pitched a complete game, striking out 11 batters and only allowed three base runners — two walks and a single in the fifth inning.

On Saturday it was Matt Hawkins who threw a complete game gem for the Huskies.

“When Skyler and Hawkins are on the mound, we’re a pretty solid baseball team,” Seccuro said. “If we could get a couple of other kids to have some confidence and have the team confident in them, I told them we can play with anyone.”

Offensively, Smith led the way, going 3-for-4, including the 3-run bomb. He drove in four runs total. Devin Ayersman went 2-for-3 with two doubles and two RBIs. Christian Tomana went 3-for-4 with two RBIs. And Cole Richards and Cody Opron each added two hits apiece.

The Huskies now hope they can keep their short winning streak alive and topple No. 3 Fairmont Senior today when they host  the Polar Bears at 4:30 p.m.
