DES MOINES - Wise beyond his years, Saydel freshman pitcher Devin Porter had Webster City guessing wrong throughout last night's non-conference baseball contest.
And when it was all said and done, Porter had a performance to remember.
The rookie southpaw tossed a no-hitter and the Eagles put up nine hits in a 10-0, six-inning victory over the Lynx.
"He's definitely a good pitcher. He's a crafty lefty," WCHS head coach Troy Smock said of Porter. "He had a good fastball and a good curve ... we couldn't stay off swinging at the curve in the dirt."
Saydel (8-2) got to WCHS starting pitcher Doug Stoakes early for a run in the first inning. The Eagles added two in the second, three in the fourth and then ended the game with four in the sixth.
Cole Reigelsberger and Dylan Fielder also took their turns on the bump.

WCHS (5-4), which erupted for 16 runs in Monday's win over Eagle Grove, will try to get it going again tonight when it hosts eighth-ranked (Class 2A) Fort Dodge St. Edmond at 7:30 p.m.
"The runs from Eagle didn't carry over (last night), but at the end we were just getting some guys some reps," Smock said. "(St. Edmond) is a team that we should really be jacked up for."
