Grizzlies can’t touch Chaney

Dillon Chaney recorded the first no-hitter of his high school career in the Bear River baseball team’s 3-0 win over visiting Granite Bay Wednesday.

The 6-foot, 6-inch right hander struck out nine in seven innings’ work on the mound to lead the Bruins to their fourth-straight win.

“He ran into a little trouble (in the first two innings), but he came back in the third and struck out the side. He kept them off-balance, got ahead in the count and was just hitting his spots,” Bruin head coach Mike Viola said.

Chaney, a junior, also went 2-for-3 to also lead the hosts at the plate.

The Bruins took a 1-0 lead in the first when Matt Logue, who led off the inning with a single, scored on a fielder’s choice.

Keith Roberts doubled in the fifth, then after advancing to third on a Craig Chandler sacrifice bunt, scored on a passed ball to double the lead on the defending Sierra Foothill League and Sac-Joaquin Section Division II champs.

“We had them down here last year during their undefeated season, and they came back to beat us in the eighth inning, so It’s really nice to get one back this year,” Viola added.

Chris Nyholm had a double and a RBI. Kody Keroher scored a run.

Bear River (13-6 overall, 8-6 SFL) will play at Granite Bay 4 p.m. Friday.
