United Refining gave pitcher Jimmy Kramer plenty of run support on Wednesday.
Not that he needed it.
Kramer struck out nine batters and twirled a no-hitter in his team's 12-0 Boys Majors victory over D&I Silica. Mitch Grosch, Caleb Ei, Griffin Suppa and Kramer all had two hits apiece, helping United to the victory.

Shelby Kuzminski's two-run home run started the scoring in a close Girls Minors win for Animalistics Outdoors over John Anderson Construction.
Kuzminski and Emily Leichtenberger scored twice each for the Animals. Mallorie Baumgrotz struck out 12 in four innings for Anderson, and Kyleigh Wilson scored two runs.
Jake Kupchella's grand slam in the top of the sixth highlighted an eight-run inning as TruckLite erased a 5-0 deficit and turned in an 8-5 come-from-behind victory over American Legion in Boys Majors competition.
