In the first start of the season, Hudsonville's Sam Schafer finds no-hit retaliation ...

Sam Schafer, a junior pitcher in Hudsonville, was one strike away from throwing his first high school no-hitter last spring.

In the Eagles' OK Red Conference final, the righthander outperformed 16 hitters in West Ottawa, but with two outs in the seventh he had two strikes against Noah Bonnema. But Bonnema broke it up with a double, causing Schafer to settle for a one-hitter.
