Herlihy Throws No-Hitter

Herlihy Throws No-Hitter

Congratulations are in order for Connor Herlihy ’24. Yesterday, the boys 1st baseball pitcher threw a no-hitter in a 2-0 victory over Buckingham Browne & Nichols School home at Brooks.

Herlihy on March 30 in Brooks School's home game vs. Kimball Union Academy. He got the 13-0 win on the mound that game, too!

It took less than 100 pitches for the team’s captain — who is now 4-0 on the season, has a save and a 3.23 ERA in a team-best 30.2 innings — to complete the feat. 

"Connor has had a fantastic season and leads our staff in almost every pitching category," said Brooks School baseball head coach Matt Antonelli. "His dominance continued Thursday with an eleven-strikeout no-hitter."

The victory was also his third consecutive start that resulted in a complete game win, dating back to April 17, when Brooks defeated Middlesex School 5-2 on the road.

He "used a four-pitch attack to keep hitters off balance throughout the game," said Antonelli of Herlihy (above in March). 

Supporting Herlihy’s no-hit bid was a defense that has now played back-to-back errorless games in the field. 

The offense was no less impressive. Shortstop Griffin Bucci ’25 led the charge, going two for three with a triple, a single, a stolen base and a run scored. Catcher Joe Bucci ’24 was one for two with an RBI single, a walk and a run scored. Designated hitter Andrew Martin ’27 was two for three with a double and an RBI single.

The May 2 victory moves Brooks to a 7-4 record on the season.

What’s next for Herlihy? Besides half a dozen more games for Brooks, the athlete from Holden, Mass., who also plays boys 1st ice hockey at Brooks, will continue playing baseball next year at the Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey.

"Connor has worked extremely hard every day in practice," said coach Antonelli. "He deserves all of his success."
