Sehome’s baseball team broke up a perfect game and no-hitter by Bellingham’s Brad Johnson in the seventh inning of its 3-0 loss Monday, April 6, at Joe Martin Field.
Johnson gave up a walk in the seventh inning to break up the perfect game and Sehome’s Owen Wright broke up the no-hitter with the team’s only hit in the seventh as well.
Austin Shenton had nine assists at shortstop for the Red Raiders in a game where neither team committed an error in the field.
“That was as good of a pitching job I’ve seen in this league in a longtime,” Sehome coach Gary Hatch said in a phone interview. “(Johnson) had us rolling the ball over and (Shenton) was making plays. They pitched to contact and we didn’t hit the ball much.”
