Almost a no-hitter for Southborough’s Turner
“It was tough not getting the no-hitter, but the most important thing is that we won the game — our guys played great defense and we hit the ball. In the beginning of the game, I had some problems but I was able to overcome them and get the ball down. Once that happened, everything went well and I threw strikes. This was a good, all-around effort by our guys, and a good win for our team.” —Southborough resident and Algonquin baseball pitcher Graham Turner on a recent game against Doherty High. Graham had a no-hitter going through 6-2/3 innings. The Tomahawks won the game 13-1. (Worcester Telegram & Gazette)
