Three games, three exceptional pitching performances and most importantly for Hart baseball, three Foothill League wins.

This time, it was Tyler Glasnow who took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before being taken out due to his high pitch count.

Glasnow’s day on the mound set the tone for Hart’s 10-0 win over Canyon on Saturday at Hart High.

Glasnow went 5 2/3 innings and struck out 10 batters without allowing a single hit.

So far in league play, the Indians’ three starters have allowed just two runs combined.

On Saturday, Hart (9-1, 3-0) only surrendered one hit, a single by Canyon’s Kevin Morrice in the seventh inning.

The hit came off relief pitcher Ricky Torres, who came in for Glasnow the inning before.

“We would have liked to seen him finish it up,” said Hart head coach Jim Ozella of Glasnow. “His pitch count got into the hundreds, but like I told him, he’s going to have a long career ahead of him, and I’m not trying to get him hurt or anything like that.”

The combination of Glasnow’s performance and an early cushion from Hart’s bats put Canyon (4-6, 0-3) in trouble from the beginning.

Hart scored five runs in the first inning off Chris Serrano, who gave up six straight hits at one point in the inning to give the Indians their first three runs.

Two batters later, Kevin Bailey capped off the rally with a two-RBI single with the bases loaded to put the Indians up 5-0.
J.T. Arguellez came in to pitch for Canyon and settled things down for a couple innings. But too many errors caught up to him, and two more runs came across for Hart in the fourth, extending the lead to 7-0.

Dallas Bacon and Alex Tenorio had two RBIs apiece in the game and Luke Persico went 3-for-4 with two runs scored for the Indians.

Of Hart’s 12 hits, not a single one went for extra bases.

“There weren’t too many cheap hits,” Ozella said. “There were a lot of bullets, a lot of missiles being hit out there.”

The final three runs were plated in the fifth inning off Canyon pitcher Taylor Pina, two of which were unearned.
