Kuhn's no-hitter leads Cheney past Belle Plaine

CHENEY, Kan. -- In game two of a doubleheader with Belle Plaine, Cheney's Kauy Kuhn capped off a career week by tossing a no-hitter against the Dragons.

On Monday against Douglass, Kuhn hit for the cycle--including his first career home run--in a 22-8 win. Then tonight, he might have topped it, going seven complete innings without allowing a hit in Cheney's 6-1 win over Belle Plaine.

The Cardinals offense got things started with Kuhn crossing the plate for his first of three runs scored on a passed ball, and then he went to work, throwing 5 2/3 of perfect baseball until an error in the bottom of the sixth lost him the perfect game. Then in the 7th, another error on an errant throw to first moved Belle Plaine's Tristan Warren to second, and he would eventually score on a grounder to end the shutout bid.

But despite the run coming across, Kuhn's 11th strikeout of the game ended it, a 6-1 win to move the Cardinals to 10-0 on the season. Cheney won a high scoring matchup earlier in the day, outslugging the Dragons 13-7 for the win.
