Southampton – In no-hitters, there are ordinarily a close call or two that mortify a pitcher during his drive toward the rare feat. Southampton right-hander Brett Moore survived a few scares but was otherwise terrific over his seven innings en route to the first no-hitter in Breakers franchise history, a 6-0 win over North Fork on the back end of a doubleheader at Stony Brook’s East End campus.
Moore’s no-hitter came less than two weeks after Sag Harbor southpaw Tim Welch tossed a hitless gem for the Whalers. Moore gave up three walks but excellent location paired with sound and sometimes spectacular defense keyed the victory. The senior-to-be at Mount St. Mary’s in Emmitsburg, MD, tipped his cap to his teammates in collecting his second win of the season in fine fashion.
“I had all my pitches working for me today and I was locating them all, but most of all it was my defense helping me out,” Moore said. “They made all the plays behind me, which helped a lot.”
