Garris

Reed Garris threw a no-hitter to lead Wando past Berkeley, 10-0, in five innings in the Warriors’ home opener Wednesday in Mount Pleasant.

The Warriors sophomore right-hander surrendered just one walk while striking out three. He averaged 10 pitches per inning, retiring 10 batters in three pitches or less.

Garris took a perfect game two outs into what would end up being the fifth and final inning. He worked Rhette Legette into a full count before being called for a fourth ball. Garris then struck out Michael Singletary on three pitches in the next at-bat to end the frame.

Wando offered Garris plenty of offensive support, ringing up nine hits by seven different players just two days after managing just one run at Berkeley.

Conner Boan went 2 for 3 with a double and three RBIs. Ben Bullard hit 2 for 3 with two runs scored. Garris, Jack Skole and Will Pickren each drove in a run. Connor Cino and Jared Aden both scored twice.

Wando was down two outs in the second inning when it reeled off five straight runs. The Warriors added three more in the fourth inning and two in the fifth — both off walks with two outs — to end the game by virtue of the 10-run rule.

Hunter Hicks got the start on the mound for Berkeley, giving up five runs, four earned, off five hits and two walks through 1 ⅔ innings.

Wando (3-2) will travel to Summerville on Friday.
