Minford’s Borland no-hits Firelands

Staff Report

CHILLICOTHE — Minford junior Cole Borland had the performance of the day at VA Memorial Stadium on Saturday as part of the Prep Baseball Report Showcase.

In the Falcons’ 3-0 win over Firelands — a Division II program in Oberlin — Borland threw a no-hitter on a smooth 79 pitches while striking out six opposing batters.

Borland walked a pair and had three hit-by-pitch base runners credited to his line, but the shutout and no-hit bid stayed in tact through the final out being recorded.

Minford (8-5, 7-3 SOC II) scored a run in the first, third, and an insurance run in the seventh on 10 hits as a team.

Juniors Adam Crank, Aodhan Queen, Noah Martin, and sophomore Mason Book each had two hits for the Falcons.

Queen and Crank both drove in a run in the win, as Queen hits were both of the extra-base variety. Queen drove in Crank to give the Falcons a 2-0 lead in the top of the third on an RBI triple.
