College Park High’s baseball team has played three home games this season. Senior Joe DeMers has pitched in all of them. He has yet to allow a single hit in any of them.
DeMers’ latest no-hitter, his third of the season, came at the expense of Northgate on Tuesday in Diablo Valley Athletic League action. He struck out five and walked one in the 11-0 win. DeMers was also 4 for 4 with three runs and two RBI. In his past two games, DeMers has gone 7 for 7 at the plate.
DeMers’ hitless streak at home began with a perfect game against Monte Vista in early March. Last Thursday, he didn’t allow a hit against Concord in a 3-0 win.
Against Northgate, DeMers got some help from his defense. In the sixth inning, Northgate’s Ryan Graham hit a liner to the outfield, but College Park right fielder Josh Nelson was able to throw him out at first. Nelson also had a big day at the plate, going 3 for 4 with three runs an RBI and a stolen base.
DeMers is committed to Washington and will likely be an early round pick in the upcoming MLB draft.
