Brandon’s Hinostroza joins no-hit club

SEFFNER – Two weeks after teammate Ryan Anderson tossed a 5-inning no-hitter against Tampa Bay Tech, Brandon ace Eric Hinostroza joined the club as the Eagles topped Armwood 4-1.
Hinostroza, a senior, struck out 11 in the game improving to 6-0 on the year. Brandon coach Matt Stallbaumer said the lone Hawks run reached base on a throwing error, moved on a strike three, past ball and scored on a ground out. The win snapped a slight skid for Brandon (14-6) as the team lost a pair of games each ending 4-1, to Hillsborough and Steinbrenner this weekend.
“It is awesome,” 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 his pitcher 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, in his 11th season as the Eagles head coach the two no-hitters are the first in his tenure.
“I’ve 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.”
