Brentwood Academy senior Ryan Victory had an Opening Day to remember, no-hitting Division II-AA foe Ensworth in route to a 5-0 win.
The 5-foot-11 right hander struck out seven and had a WHIP (walk, hits per innings pitched) of .43 in seven innings of no-hit ball. Victory put pressure on Tiger batters early, throwing 18 first-pitch strikes.
He remained humble throughout the night, even after his Twitter account was flooded with praise from friends.
No other guys I would have behind me then the ones who were tonight ⚾️

The Eagles busted the game open in the fifth inning, bringing four runs across after only leading 1-0 prior.
Cole Marciniak had a game-best three hits for the Eagles.
BA continues their series with the Tigers today, hosting Ensworth at 4:15 p.m. The finale will be March 11 at Ensworth.
