WESTON – Marshfield charged out to a three-goal lead, then had to hold off a late comeback from D.C. Everest and beat the Evergreens 3-2 in a Wisconsin Valley Conference boys soccer game Tuesday at D.C. Everest Middle School.

Hunter McManus scored the only goal in the first half, putting Marshfield up 1-0.

Ryan Hayes and Thomas Kruger added goals in the second half to push the Tigers to a 3-0 advantage.

D.C. Everest mounted a comeback on goals from Chris Cornish and Colton Kellnhauser in the final 20 minutes, but Marshfield was able to hold on and kept its chances at a second-straight WVC title alive.

The Tigers are now 10-7-2 overall and 5-4-1 in the Valley. With 16 total points in conference play, Marshfield moves past D.C. Everest and Wausau West in the standings, with two games remaining. Marshfield hosts first-place Stevens Point next Tuesday and Wisconsin Rapids on Oct. 9 to finish its regular-season and WVC schedule.

Everest is now 5-6-4 overall and 4-2-3 in the conference.

“It was an outstanding first half of soccer with solid defense and a strong passing game,” Marshfield coach Steve McCann said. “We were able to capitalize on two free-kick opportunities in the second half, which ended up being the difference.”

Auburndale native Jordan Zimmermann throws no-hitter for Washington Nationals in regular-season finale

WASHINGTON – Auburndale High School graduate and former University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point pitcher Jordan Zimmermann pitched the first no-hitter for the Washington Nationals, the gem preserved when defensive replacement Steven Souza Jr. made a diving catch in left field for the final out in a 1-0 victory over the Miami Marlins in a regular-season finale Sunday.

Zimmermann (14-5) allowed only two baserunners, finishing with 10 strikeouts and one walk in the fifth no-hitter in the majors this year.
Christian Yelich almost wrecked Zimmermann’s bid with two outs in the ninth inning. He sent a long drive to left-center, and Zimmermann leaned his head back and winced, thinking his no-hitter was lost.

But Souza, who made his big league debut this year and took over for Ryan Zimmerman to begin the ninth, ran hard into the gap, extended his glove and leaped for the sensational catch. Souza used his bare hand to squeeze the ball in his mitt as he fell.

Souza hopped up and punched the air. Zimmermann, watching from the mound, raised both arms overhead and pumped his right fist.

“I thought that was a double for sure, and here he comes out of nowhere and makes the play,” Zimmermann said.

The Nationals put a stirring end to a regular season in which they finished with the best record in the National League. Washington begins the playoffs at home on Friday.

In a season marked by diminished offer, Josh Beckett of the Dodgers pitched a no-hitter against Philadelphia on May 25 and Los Angeles teammate Clayton Kershaw did it to Colorado on June 18. San Francisco’s Tim Lincecum no-hit San Diego on June 25 and four Philadelphia pitchers combined to stop Atlanta on Sept. 1.

Zimmermann retired the first 14 batters before walking Justin Bourn on a full-count pitch with two outs in the fifth inning.
With two outs in the seventh, Garrett Jones reached first base on a strikeout when he swung and missed on a wild pitch. Zimmermann leaned over and put his hands on his knees. But moments later, catcher Wilson Ramos picked off Jones at first.

Zimmermann needed only 104 pitches to record 27 outs, and his accuracy was unassailable: 79 strikes and just 25 balls.

Starting on seven days’ rest because his pitching shoulder got bruised by a line drive his last time out, also against Miami, Zimmermann poured in fastballs in the mid-90s mph, used his mid-80s slider to great effect and had his changeup fooling a Marlins lineup without NL home-run champion Giancarlo Stanton.

By the late innings, the crowd of 35,085 was roaring with every pitch by Zimmermann.

On Sunday, with only a few clouds and a first-pitch temperature at 79 degrees, Zimmermann didn’t need a whole lot of defensive help until the final play. That might have been a good thing, because the NL East champion Nationals already had pulled starting fielders over the course of the afternoon.

The closest Miami came to getting hits before Yelich probably were three liners, all in the fifth, and all grabbed by backup infielders — by Tyler Moore at first base, by Kevin Frandsen at third base, and by Danny Espinosa at shortstop.
Espinosa had come in to replace Ian Desmond, whose 24th homer with one out in the second off Alvarez (12-7) accounted for the only run.

There were four no-hitters thrown by the Montreal Expos before the franchise moved to Washington before the 2005 season.
Dennis Martinez did it in 1991, Charlie Lea pitched one in 1981 and Bill Stoneman threw Expos no-hitters in 1972 and 1969.

Along with Zimmermann and Alvarez, other no-hitters on the final day came by Mike Witt, who threw a perfect game for the Angels in 1984, four Oakland pitchers in 1975 and Bumpus Jones for Cincinnati in 1892.
