HANCOCK - Hancock pitcher Trent Rider had just one pitch at his disposal Saturday morning.
It wasn't a problem because Valley couldn't touch it.
Rider pitched 4 1/3 hitless innings with 10 strikeouts before giving way to Jesse Wolford, who got the final five outs as Hancock no-hit Valley for a 6-0 win in the winners' bracket final of the Maryland District 1 9-10 Tournament.
"I didn't throw anything other than my fastball," Rider said. "I was pretty confident that I could (win)."
Rider walked four and left in the fifth inning after throwing 78 pitches. Wolford, who entered the game with one out and the bases loaded, struck out the next batter and got out of the inning by picking off Austin Jones at third base.
That was the only time Valley had a runner in scoring position.
"(Jones) thought the ump called timeout and they caught him," said Valley coach Frank Bywaters. "I wish he would have told me right away and I could have challenged it. I liked our chances to pick up a couple of runs there.
