Little Leaguer strikes out 16 of 19 batters
Hunter Erickson of the Bailey Dentistry Angels threw a no-hitter on Saturday, April 14, in a Philipstown Little League game at the North Highlands Fire Department fields.
The Garrison School fifth-grader faced 19 batters from the visiting Slater Chemical Giants of the Fishkill Little League and struck out 16. He allowed one walk, nearly missing a perfect game.
Hunter said he was so excited that he thought he had lost the no-hitter when he allowed the walk in the fifth inning. After being assured it was still intact, he struck out the side for a 3-0 Angels win.
