The Zionsville baseball team got its first win of the season Friday night at the Midwest Classic in Westfield.
The Eagles pitchers of Nolan Elsbury, Jack Pilcher and Jake Lane combined on a no-hitter as the Class 4A No. 12 Eagles topped Class 2A No. 2 Lafayette Central Catholic 8-0.
The win was the first as head coach for coach Jered Moore.
The teams were scoreless into the fifth inning, when Nick Mains led off the inning with a single. Three batters later, Ben Kocher singled him home for the first run of the game.
Zionsville then busted the game wide open with a six run sixth inning.
The innings got four-straight singles from Travis Tokarek, Grant Sloan, Drew Bertram and Evan Miiller to score a run and load the bases with no outs.
Chris Waidelich drew a walk to force in the third run, and Trevor Fox followed with a 2-run double to make it 5-0.
A fielders' choice by Elsbury scored Waidelich to make it 6-0, and Fox scored on a single by Glen Collier to finish the scoring.
The Eagles added a run in the seventh when Sloan, who had doubled, scored on a wild pitch.
Elsbury started the game and was perfect through four innings. He struck out six.
Pilcher pitched the next two innings, giving up two walks, and striking out one. Lane closed the door in the seventh, striking out two while preserving the no hitter.
The win advanced the Eagles into a game against Saline High School, one of the top teams in Michigan.
Zionsville won in walk-off fashion, getting the game-winning knock from Nick Maines to win 3-2. The win advanced the Eagles to the semifinals today against Cathedral.
The Eagles (2-1) and the Fighting Irish will meet at 1 p.m.
