Clinton Township Clintondale junior Brian Dell needed only five innings to throw a no-hitter in his team's 12-0 win over host Warren Lincoln Wednesday.

Dell (1-0) struck out four batters for Clintondale (3-1, 2-0 MAC Bronze), while hitting two and walking one.

"It was his first varsity performance," Clintondale coach Rob Townsend said of the junior. "He came out firing strikes and found his rhythm."

Jesus Johnson and Chris Williams were both 2-for-3 for Clintondale with two RBIs. The team also drew 13 walks from Lincoln pitchers.

Clintondale had runners on second and third with one out in the top of the first when Johnson tripled them in, giving his team a 2-0 lead.

Dell got into some trouble in the bottom of the fourth. He hit two batters and walked a third. Clintondale escaped the jam with a pickoff and catching two runners attempting to steal.

Lincoln dropped to 0-4, 0-2.

The two teams will wrap up the three-game series at 4:30 today.
