RHP Robert Benincasa of Chet Lemon’s Juice threw a complete game no-hitter on Saturday morning and only a couple of defensive breakdowns kept him from throwing a Perfect Game in a 5-0 win over South Florida PG Blue.

The 6-0, 175 senior from Armwood HS in Riverview, Florida struck out 16 hitters, a tournament high thus far, without allowing a walk. Three PG Blue hitters reached by error, including one on Benincasa himself, but none advanced beyond first base.

Along with impeccable control, Benincasa pitched steadily in the 84-86 mph range with a sweeping 70-72 mph curveball.
