NEW PORT RICHEY - Cobi Johnson, Chris McCormick and P.J. DeJesus combined to pitch a no-hitter Wednesday night during Mitchell’s 9-0 win at Gulf High School.

The trio struck out 11 Buccaneers batters, with Johnson’s six leading the way. McCormick fanned three and DeJesus sat down two.

Johnson also starred at the plate Wednesday, going 3-for-4 with two doubles, three RBIs and a run scored. Eddie Goscicki and Marcus Begg, both seniors, hit home runs for Mitchell, as the Mustangs racked up seven extra-base hits.
