North Salem's Mahoney Just Misses No-Hitter

Connor Mahoney tossed 6.2 innings and struck out 12 in a season-opening win over Rye Neck.

MAMARONECK, N.Y.— Connor Mahoney could taste it.

The left-hander was one out away from a no-hitter in North Salem baseball’s season opener but Rye Neck was able to muster a two-out hit.

Still, Mahoney mowed down host Rye Neck, tossing 6.2 innings with 12 strikeouts in a 5-1 win on April 5.

“The key for me was keeping the hitters off balance and being able to use all my pitches for strikes—throwing any pitch in any count,” Mahoney said. “My adrenaline also played a factor because I was amped and ready to go.”

Being a single out away from a no-hitter and not finishing it off was frustrating for Mahoney, but he knows all that matters at the end of the day is the win.

“I was happy with my performance and with the team’s performance,” Mahoney said. “But I was infuriated when I let up a hit with one out left. I knew I could’ve pulled it off with more focus and better pitch execution on the final batter. I was happy to get the win though.”

Nate Carminucci paced North Salem at the plate, going 2 for 3 with two RBI.

With a number of rainouts, the Tigers were happy to get on the diamond and finally get the season under way.

“It was great to get out on the field on such a nice day,” Mahoney said. “We were all prepared and just eager to get started, and it definitely showed. We were all happy with the result and are looking forward to more action this week. Can’t beat baseball on a nice day.”

The action continued when North Salem travelled to Somers on April 12 and it will head to Valhalla for an 11 a.m. contest on April 15.
