LITTLE RIVER — Little River’s baseball team is showing a reservoir of pitching depth.

The Redskins have been riding Tevin Renken and Cordell Moore so far this season, but Thursday Levi Baldwin and Grant Harvey stepped in to hold up the back end of the rotation.

Baldwin pitched a two-hitter in a 12-2 first-game victory over Bennington. He was backed by a solid offense that pounded out eight runs in the third inning.

Moore crushed three doubles and a single, good for three RBIs, to lead the attack. Zack Konen and Laramie Peters drove in two runs apiece.

Baldwin’s only hiccup was the third inning when the Bulldogs scored both of their runs. He struck out 11.

Harvey was spectacular in the second game, throwing a five-inning no-hitter and striking out nine in a 10-0 rout. It was the Redskins’ fourth no-hitter already this season.

Kyler Cox was 4 for 4 with three RBIs and three runs scored. Moore added two more hits and two RBIs and Peters also had two hits.

Little River scored in all but one inning.
