Cate senior Joel Revo fired a no-hitter in a 6-1 victory over long-time rival Thacher in the Frontier League baseball opener on Wednesday at Cate.

It was the first no-hitter by a Rams pitcher since 2009.

"Anytime you can beat the Toads to open up league play, it's special," Cate assistant coach Dave Soto said. "Adding a historic performance onto that is icing on the cake. It was certainly a fantastic outing by Joel, but it was a great team win overall. We had players step up today and we are going to need that sort of effort going forward."

The left-handed Revo struck out eight, walked one and hit two batters in his complete-game outing.

The offense was led by Patrick Armstrong, who went 2-for-4 with a double, and Jack Deardorff, who doubled and drove in three runs. Emily Burns also doubled and scored a run.

The rivals meet against on Friday at Thacher at 4:15 p.m.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
