Southeast Lauderdale's Miller throws a no-hitter


    Southeast Lauderdale starting pitcher Jake Miller threw a no-hitter Thursday night, helping the Tigers defeat Newton High School 20-0.

    Miller (2-0) pitched five innings, walking four batters and striking out eight Newton batters on the night. The no-hitter was Miller's first in his time with Southeast.

    “He was throwing his breaking pitch for a strike tonight,” Southeast Lauderdale head coach Shay Cooper said of Miller. “He was able to keep them off-balanced, and our defense was able to make plays behind him as well.

    “I'm not sure he was aware of it or not,” Cooper said.  “Offensively the game was out of hand, so people were kind of relaxed. It was a real relaxed atmosphere, and he just kept doing his job on the mound.”

    Southeast was equally as strong at the plate, tallying 18 hits on the night. Josh Litchfield led the Tigers with three hits, including two triples and a double. Zach Sciple, Gage Hagan, Dillon Rivers, Mason Irby, Hunter Thrower and Nathan Ross all had multiple hits for Southeast. Rivers accounted for five RBIs on the night.

    Southeast moves to 4-3 with the win and will travel to Newton County on Saturday at 4 p.m.
