With a stellar effort from the mound and plenty of offense, the Bear River baseball team notched its first win of the season, a 10-0 home victory over the Rosemont Wolverines Thursday.

Senior pitcher Justin Kilgore was dominant from the bump for Bear River, throwing five innings of no-hit baseball before the game was called due to the mercy-rule. Kilgore struck out four along the way and walked three. He was also strong at the plate with a base hit, two RBIs and a run scored.

Leading the Bruins’ bats was Jake Rogers with three hits, including a double and three RBIs. Nathan Van Patten added two hits, including a double and also scored three runs. Clay Corippo was 2-for-3 with a double, two RBIs and two runs scored. Cole Winters chipped in a double and an RBI. Aaron Sasville also had a hit and an RBI in the win. In all, the Bruins tallied 12 hits and scored 10 runs, all of which came in the first three innings of the game.

Next up for the Bruins (1-4) is a road matchup with Marysville Saturday.
