DACULA — Zach Kwiatkowski was nearly perfect Tuesday in the Hebron Christian baseball team’s 5-0 win over Providence Christian.
The right-hander went seven innings for a no-hitter, allowing just one base runner on a leadoff walk in the third inning. He struck out seven as the Lions (20-7, 7-4) locked up the No. 2 from Region 5-A Private for the state playoffs.
Jackson Hackney (one hit, one RBI), Nate Coker (one hit, two RBIs) and Luke Starling (RBI triple) led the Hebron offense.
Providence (6-20, 4-10) got solid pitching from Carson Tillotson, who allowed only three hits with two strikeouts in five innings. Connor Jones also retired all three batters he faced in one inning of work.
