Idaho High School Baseball: Primetime Pitchers (Week of 4/3 - 4/8)
Standout pitching performances from players at both big schools and small schools highlight this week's list

It’s time for this week’s edition of Primetime Pitchers.  Every Tuesday, we'll recap the five most dominating pitching performances from the past week of baseball competition.

Why five?  Because most pitching rotations carry five players.

I should note that these are single-game performances only.  I don't have the math skills to pull off calculating weekly totals.

With that said, here's our list of Idaho baseball's Primetime Pitchers, from the week of April 3rd to April 8th.  The performances will be listed in chronological order.

1. Brayden Schaefer, So, Nampa Christian
1. Jack Ihli, So, Nampa Christian

We try not to award co-spots on our Primetime Pitchers list, but when teammates combine on a no-hitter, we have to bend the rules.  On Monday, April 3rd, Nampa Christian shut out North Star Charter in a Western Idaho Conference contest 10-0.  Schaefer got the start on the mound, and delivered four innings of no-hit ball with five strikeouts.  A second inning walk was the lone blemish on the day for Schaefer (otherwise the no-hitter would have been a perfect game.)  Ihli came in for the fifth and final inning, and struck out two of the three hitters he faced to preserve the no-no.

2. Sean Powers, Sr, Parma

Powers dealt Baker (Oregon) a 4-1 loss by allowing just one earned run with 12 strikeouts in seven innings of work on Saturday, April 8th.  The right-hander has been pitching incredibly well as of late, as he sports a microscopic 0.75 ERA overall on the season with 45 strikeouts against just seven walks.

3. Bryce Stockton, Sr, Coeur d’Alene

In an Inland Empire League showdown with Moscow on Tuesday, April 4th, Stockton went the distance in a 10-0 shutout win.  Stockton allowed just four hits and finished with ten strikeouts.

4. Zeke Ochoa, Sr, Horseshoe Bend

Ochoa spun a great game on Tuesday, April 4th, in an 18-1 win over Gem State in Western Idaho Conference action.  Ochoa twirled five innings of one-hit ball, and racked up 13 strikeouts.  Do the math: in a game that went five innings, there are 15 total outs to record.  13 of the 15 outs came via the strikeout.

5. Drew Hymas, Jr, Highland

The Rams faced High Country Conference rival Thunder Ridge on Friday, April 7th.  And in a 1-0 win, Highland’s margin for error was razor thin.  Luckily for the Rams, Drew Hymas pitched a complete game shutout, yielding just three hits in seven innings of work.  Hymas also struck 12 hitters in the win.
