BIDWELL — What does as guy have to do to get a win?

Freshman Daniel Rutherford pitched a no-hitter but lost 1-0 to the River Valley Raiders Friday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.

Rutherford struck out 10 and walked two in going the distance. He also went 202 at the plate.

“Daniel pitched well and we played well, we just didn’t cash in on our opportunities,” said Hornets’ coach Dean Mader.

“It’s tough to pitch a no-hitter and get beat.”

River Valley scored the only run of the game in the sixth inning.

Austin Barber walked, moved up on an error, and went to third on a ground out. Trey Farley hit an infield grounder and the Hornets threw home but Barber beat the throw to score.

Coal Grove loaded the bases in the top of the seventh but failed to score despite two attempted squeeze bunt plays.
