Future Tucson High School baseball player Mario Bejarano pitched a no-hitter today for the Southwest against Southeast today in the 2017 14U National Team Identification Series at the USA Baseball training facility in Cary, N.C.
Bejarano, an eighth grader this school year, achieved the no-hitter in the seven-inning game, won by the Southwest 4-1. The Southeast scored its run after a batter walked, stole second and ran home on a throwing error from the outfielder who was trying to get the baserunner out at third base after tagging up on a fly ball.
In Southwest’s second game today, Bejarano had two RBIs in a 12-11 victory over South Florida. Southwest plays SoCal on Saturday morning in a semifinal game.
