Newts get no-hit, drop series at Rose

Updated: 7 days ago

MISHAWAKA - It was another low-scoring, early spring series on Sunday at Rose Park. The New Carlisle Newts (4-2) were able to steal one game on the road, but dropped the series to Mishawaka, 3-4, 1-0, 0-1.

Koby Keck earned the loss in the opener. The Newts fell behind early after Ryan Warmoth slipped a two-run homer over the fence in the first inning.

Matt Soos tried his best to bail out his skipper. First, he drove in Tyler Shupert on a single in the fourth to cut the deficit in half. Then, in the fifth, Soos gave the Newts the lead with a two-run blast to center.

The lead was short-lived, as Joe Stratton tied it up in the bottom half with a solo shot. Mishawaka took their final lead later in the inning on an Anthony Rieff RBI single.

On the mound, Soos took the ball the rest of the series for the Newts and continued to make an early-season case for the National League Cy Young award.

Soos allowed just one hit in the second game, and the Newts were able to scratch across the contest's only run in the fourth with RBI single from Keck.

Soos was just as good on the bump in the rubber match, allowing just one run on a ground out in the second inning.

Unfortunately for the Newts, they provided their pitcher with no run support - and no hit support for that matter. Rieff capped the series with a perfect game, just the second time New Carlisle has gone hitless in franchise history.

ORWBL will take a week off to observe Mother's Day, and the Newts will be back in action on Sunday, May 19. New Carlisle will open up Migley Field against Great Lakes. First pitch is scheduled for 1:20pm ET.
