LITTLE RIVER — Strong pitching continues to be the backbone of the Little River baseball team.

The Redskins received two more sterling performances on the mound in a 13-3 and 11-1 sweep of Minneapolis on Tuesday.

In the opener, Tevin Renken — who had pitched a perfect game in his last outing — fanned 10 to pick up the win. He wasn’t quite a sharp as his last outing, walking four, but was never in any serious trouble.

The Redskins collected 10 hits, nine of them singles. Laramie Peters’ double was the only extra-base hit.

Peters, Kyler Cox and Zack Konen all had two hits. Peters and Grant Harvey drove in three runs apiece, while Konen and Levi Baldwin had two RBIs.

Moore threw his second straight no-hitter in Game 2. He walked three and struck out four.

The Redskins took advantage of everything the Lions gave them, scoring their 11 runs on just seven hits. Harvey had two hits, one of them a double, and Konen also stroked a double.
