Friday was a day Austin Trip will remember forever as Trip threw a no-hitter in Mason’s 5-3 victory over Kenedy. No Kenedy batter was able to locate Trip’s pitches during the game. Trip threw a no-hitter, striking out nine batters and walking four while recording his momentous feat. He got Player B to ground out for the final out of the game.
Kolby Yonker did his best to jumpstart the offense for the Punchers, reaching base three times. He scored one run and had one RBI. He singled in the third and fifth innings. Chance Stockbridge opened the gates as he doubled in the second to drive in Yonker and Kunc.
The Punchers will be playing Fayatteville Thursday night at 7:30 at Georgetown H.S.

The Punchers Take Out Benevides with Help from Stockbridge, 6-1
Chance Stockbridge went 2-4, helping Mason to a 6-1 victory over Benevides on Saturday at S.A I.S.D Sports Complex. He tripled in the third inning and singled in the sixth inning.
There were many good approaches at the plate, by the Mason Punchers, Saturday night. With the wind blowing across the stadium, several hard hit balls were held up for outs. The 6-1 score doesn’t compliment how well the Punchers were swinging the stick. One through nine hitters were all keyed in.
Benevides came out and gave a great effort. There was a feeling of hope for Benevides early on when they scored their only run. However, the momentum changed in the second inning on a well executed first and third situation by Kolby Yonker and Bodie Adams that turned the tables, and it was all Puncher effort from there.
Austin Trip worked out of nine tough situations for Mason. He pitched seven innings and allowed one earned run on five hits. Austin had 19 first pitch strikes that helped him to fan 11. You could tell his chi was centered and his chakras were wide open until the 4th inning when he started feeling ill. Warning: if chicken strips look shaky, do not eat them.
The Punchers will be playing Kenedy, Friday May 18th at 7:30 in Hondo.
