Galena’s Barry no-hits
MINDEN — Nate Barry started well on the mound for the Galena High baseball team and only got stronger along the way on Tuesday when he pitched a no-hitter to blank Douglas 11-0 during the Northern Division I conference contest.
Barry retired 18 of the 20 batters he faced at Tiger Field during a game shortened to six innings due to the 10-run rule. The senior left-hander finished strong by striking out seven of the last eight batters he faced. He had 11 strikeouts and only one walk overall as Galena (4-0 conference, 7-1 overall) remained tied for first-place.
“He was unhittable,” first-year Galena coach Dave Kulikowski said of Barry, who threw first-pitch strikes to 13 of 20 batters. “He got ahead of guys and made his pitches against everybody. I was really proud of him.”
Douglas coach John Glover described the performance by Barry as impressive. Just consider the Tigers had 11 hits and only struck out four times Saturday in a 14-9 loss at Galena.
“That outing was spectacular,” Glover said. “He was throwing three pitches for strikes and his location was great. We knew that coming in, he was just unbelievable.”
The no-hitter was the first for Barry, a first-team all-region pitcher for the Grizzlies in 2014. Barry only needed 78 pitches to finish his gem.
“My energy got bigger and bigger as the game went on,” Barry said. “Then when we scored those runs in the sixth, I wanted to finish it.”
Galena put the game away by scoring four runs in the fourth inning and four more runs in the sixth.
