Corey Anderson threw 4 2/3 innings of no-hit baseball and Bradley Love homered twice as Stanly County rolled over Montgomery County in seven innings, 11-0.

Anderson was perfect through the first three innings, getting four ground ball outs, two weak infield pop-ups and two shallow fly outs. He allowed the first base runner to lead off the fourth when he threw high to first base on a bunt.

In the fifth inning, Anderson recorded his only two strike outs and walked a batter, then surrendered consecutive singles to center field to load the bases. But he worked out of the jam, inducing a ground out to second base.

With two outs in the sixth, Montgomery had a batter reach on an error and followed with a solid single, but Anderson got ground out to end the threat.

Lefty John McClure three a perfect seventh inning, fanning the last two batters.

Offensively, Love started the game with a bang, lining a shot over the left-field fence, then in the third, he walked with one out to start a three-run rally. Colten Burris had a RBI single and Tanner Furr drove in a run with a ground out.

In the fourth, Alex Robichaud stroked an outside pitch into the left field corner for a double and Love followed with his second home run of the game, a one-out liner over the left field fence.

After a second out, Nate Furr doubled up the right-center power alley and Corey Dick drove him home with a sharp grounder through the right side.

In the Post 76 fifth inning, Robichaud followed singles by Burris and Corey Hartis with a long drive over the right-field fence to put Stanly County on top 10-0.

Dick reached on an error to open the sixth and scored on Tyler Eudy’s hot bouncer just inside the third base bag for an 11-0 lead.

McClure then closed out the win with a perfect seventh inning and Stanly County had the 11-0 win.
