Local Roundup - Martinsburg no-hits Musselman in Border War


WINCHESTER, Va. - Mark Ostrowski's single with the bases loaded brought in the tying run, and an outfield error by Musselman emptied the bases and opened the floodgates as three Martinsburg hurlers combined for a no-hitter to win 10-1 and take the first Border War Classic at James Wood High School.

It was the second no-no of the season for the No. 6 Bulldogs' pitching staff, which also pulled the trick in the first game of the season. Ostrowski pitched the first three innings, and Josh Brown proceeded to strike out seven over the next three innings before Brandon Bartley closed the door as the Bulldogs (8-2) kept pounding on previously undefeated Jason Bozzi.

Justin Walther led the Martinsburg hitting attack with two doubles and a single. Musselman (7-4-1) got its only run on a walk, hit batsman and an outfield throwing error after a fly ball out in the second.
