GUSTINE — Clint Manzo didn't exactly have his best stuff when he pitched against Waterford last week.
His stuff was much better Wednesday.
Manzo struck out 12 of the 13 Millennium batters he faced and pitched a four-inning no-hitter as Gustine High (2-2) routed the Falcons 16-0 in a nonleague baseball game.
An error prevented Manzo from a perfect game.
Never miss a local story.
Manzo lowered his ERA to 0.84. Against Waterford last week, Manzo allowed three hits and two walks in 1ª innings in a 7-1 loss. Only one of the five runs Manzo allowed was earned.
