Dakota Ridge pitcher Nick Silva accomplished something on July 14 that pitchers used to achieve a century ago. Just two days after pitching a 2-0 complete game shutout against Wheat Ridge, Silva pitched another complete game, a 5-2 victory over ThunderRidge.
The win gave Dakota Ridge the championship in the Willie White State Tournament at Dakota Ridge High School. Silva scattered eight hits while striking out eight batters. He didn’t issue a single walk.
“I knew it was the last game of the season and I had to give it my all,” Silva said.
