Collins senior Zac Wiley did more than shutout the Shelby County baseball team Thursday evening, he no-hit the Rockets.

The right-hander’s “no-no” gave the Titans a 3-0 triumph over visiting Shelby County.

The Bellarmine University-signee walked two and struck out five in an 80-pitch gem.

“He was outstanding,” Collins Coach Roy Bailey said.

The Titans (12-2), No. 14 in the state coaches poll and No. 15 in the Kentucky Prep Top 25, won for the eighth time in their last nine games.

Senior Mason Jeffries went 3-for-3 and junior Alex Doyle was 2-for-3 for Collins, which plated one run in the first inning, then tallied twice more in the second

That was more than enough for Wiley, who induced six groundouts and 10 fly outs in ending the Rockets’ four-game win streak

Shelby County senior left-hander Dillon Boone absorbed the loss. He gave up one earned run while walking two and striking out four.

Collins hosts Northeast Dubois at 6 p.m. Friday. The Rockets (12-4) host Washington County at 11 a.m. Saturday.
