St. Louis pitchers
show no mercy

Star-Bulletin staff


St. Louis' offense overshadowed its pitching during yesterday's 15-0 romp over University/Hawaii Baptist at Ala Wai Field.

But when the Interscholastic League of Honolulu game ended after five innings due to the mercy rule, a gem was uncovered.

Guy McDowell and Sean Paiva had combined to pitch a no-hitter.

"I didn't even know it was a no-hitter until after the game," said St. Louis coach Wade Okamura, after his team improved to 5-1.

McDowell, a sophomore making his first varsity start, pitched four innings and Paiva, a senior, pitched the fifth in dropping UHBA to 0-6.

"Guy had good speed on his fastball, and he has a good curveball when he can control it," Okamura said.

That wasn't always the case yesterday.

McDowell struck out eight, but was wild at times and walked four. He escaped bases-loaded situations twice, in the first and fourth innings.

Paiva, who didn't get out of the first inning in the Crusaders' ILH opener against Maryknoll, struck out one and walked one in his inning.

The Crusaders sent 14 batters to the plate in the fourth, scoring nine runs on eight hits.
