Discoverers Combined No-Hitter Highlights Saturday’s Action

Columbus High’s baseball team went 1-1 in Lincoln Saturday. 

After being edged by Lincoln North Star 8-7, the Discoverers cruised to a 9-0 victory over Lincoln High.  The win featured a combined no-hitter by Matt Krueger and Spencer Shotkoski.  Krueger pitched 6.2 innings, allowing three walks and fanning nine batters.  He had to be taken out due to his pitch count, but Shotkoski got the final out to complete the no-no. 

In the North Star game, Columbus scored six runs in the top of the seventh to take a 7-5 lead, but the Navigators scored three in their last at-bat for the walkoff win. 

CHS will take a 4-10 record into this week’s HAC tournament in Lincoln.
