Warren throws no-hitter as PCA defeats Russell|Prep baseball

Matthew Warren threw a no-hitter, and Porters Chapel locked up a playoff spot with a 7-0 win over Russell Christian on Saturday.

Warren walked only one batter and struck out 10. He was helped by a six-run first inning that gave him plenty of breathing room.

John Michael Harris had two hits and two RBIs for the Eagles (11-8, 8-1 District 5-A), and Montana McDaniel doubled. Harris brought in two runs with a single during the big first inning, then circled the bases thanks to an outfield error.
