Two weeks after teammate Ryan Anderson tossed a no-hitter against Tampa Bay Tech, Brandon ace Eric Hinostroza joined the club as the Eagles topped Armwood 4-1 Tuesday.

Hinostroza, a senior, struck out 11 batters in to 6-0. The lone Hawks run reached base on a throwing error, moved to second on a strikeout, took third on a passed ball and scored on a groundout.

The win snapped a slight skid for Brandon (14-6), which had lost a pair of games to Hillsborough and Steinbrenner last weekend.

"It is awesome," Brandon coach Stallbaumer said. "Eric came into Monday's practice and after we lost two tough games and he didn't get a chance to throw. We really went at it and he was ready to get us back on track."

Stallbaumer said Hinostroza was hit on the elbow in his first at-bat and from there "dialed in a little bit" when he returned to the mound. For Stallbaumer, the two no-hitters are the first in 11 seasons as Eagles head coach

"I'd never had one before Ryan's," Stallbaumer said. "We've had tons of one-hitters and having two in one year after being here for 11 years, it's phenomenal."
