Senior Pitcher John Shurance pitched a perfect game –- a no hitter -- for the Linfield Christian Lions as they went on the road to shut-out Aquinas 2-0.

Shurance threw 77 pitches in seven complete innings, striking out nine of the 21 batters he faced with only one ball reaching the outfield. "This is amazing efficiency!" exclaimed Linfield assistant coach Eric Willis.

Shurance had seven strikeouts in the previous game against Woodcrest Christian and six in each of the two previous games. He has a season ERA of 1.17.

Linfield scored its first run in the first inning. Shurance hit a triple. First baseman Haakon Box beat out a hit to the shortstop with two outs to score Shurance.

In the fifth inning, third baseman Connor Kisgen got on base on an error by the Aquinas shortstop. He was bunted to second by catcher Juan Parra. With two outs, shortstop Taylor Bush singled to right field and center fielder Chris Jasien hit a single to drive in Kisgen for Linfield’s second run.

Linfield’s overall record is 5-3; they are 2-1 in Ambassador League play.
