MERCERVILLE —Simply put, the host Rebels got no-hit by Schmidt.
Notre Dame hurler Chris Schmidt that is.
That’s because Schmidt threw a five-inning no-hitter on Tuesday against South Gallia, firing 69 total pitches and striking out 11 Rebels — in the Titans’ 11-0 non-league baseball win.
With the victory, Notre Dame — with three non-league wins — raised its record to a perfect 3-0, as the Titans have outscored their opposition by a count of 21-1.
They first won at Coal Grove 8-1 on Saturday, before blanking Lewis County (Ky.) 2-0 in a non-league pitcher’s duel on Monday.
The South Gallia contest was called following the fifth inning with the 10-run mercy rule.

Schmidt, McGuire and Caleb Nichols added an RBI apiece, as McGuire (1-for-2), Nichols (1-for-4) and Ethan Kammer (1-for-3) all chipped in a hit with Schmidt.
