|Peter Hendron - Perfection!|

Hendron was dominant from the outset, throwing three pitches for strikes. His fastball had the needed giddyup and the curve ball kept the opposing Wolves off balance all game. In his seven innings of work, Hendron needed only 96 pitches to set down 21 Eastlake batters in order. He struck out ten and induced five groundouts and six flyouts.
However, Redmond needed to score a run in order for the game to be complete. They did just that in the top of the 7th with a two out rally. Junior Brent Firth blooped a single to center. From there, pinch-runner Max Hicok stole second and moved up on a seeing eye single from sophomore pinch-hitter, Kyle Francis. After a walk to Brandon Burditt to load the bases, Cody Beliel was plunked to walk in the winning run.
Redmond looks to run their win streak to 11 with a matchup with the Crest Division leading Skyline Spartans on Monday at Hartman Park. First pitch is at 6 pm. Be there ... you never know what may happen!
Peter is a scholarship athlete playing for Santa Clara University next year.
