Waverly baseball pitcher Derek Eblin etched his name into the Tigers record book Tuesday, firing the baseball program’s first-ever “perfect game” in a 1-0 win over Gallia Academy in the Division 2 Sectional Tournament.
Eblin worked all 7 innings, not allowing any batter to reach base while also striking out 13 Gallia Academy batters.
Eblin also had a base hit and accounted for the Tiger’s lone RBI in the victory. Waverly collected 6 base hits for the game, improving to (23-5) for the season.
Waverly’s win now puts them up against Unioto at 5pm this Thursday in Waverly for the Sectional Final.
