PREP BASEBALL ROUNDUP: Romero throws second straight no-hitter

Roughriders improve to 5-0 on the season

BREMERTON — Port Angeles’ Colton Romero pitched his second straight no-hitter, this one a five-inning complete-game gem, as the Roughriders baseball team remained red-hot in a 10-0 victory over Olympic.

Romero hasn’t allowed a hit in nine innings pitched this season. He struck out nine and walked two. His no-hitter last week was a combined gem with Brayden Martin.

The Riders have been scary good in their past four games. Port Angeles has outscored its opponents 38-1 over those four games, with three of the four games ending after five innings. Roughrider pitchers have allowed just five hits in the team’s past 22 innings.

Romero threw just 86 pitches, with 50 of them strikes.

Port Angeles’ bats have been somewhat overshadowed by the fantastic pitching, but the Riders are averaging 10 runs a game.

Alex Angevine and Ezra Townsend led the way Tuesday. Angevine was 3-for-3 with three runs scored and two RBIs. He walked once and stole two bases. Townsend hit two doubles, going 3-for-4 for the day with four RBIs.

Romero had two hits in four at-bats to keep his on-base percentage at .619. Trae Hanan was 2-for-2 with a run scored while Nate Basden was 2-for-2 with two runs scored, two stolen bases and an RBI.

Port Angeles (3-0, 5-0) hosts Olympic (0-2, 2-2) at Civic Field at 4:15 p.m. Thursday.
