Tuesday's area roundup: Masco's Twiss tosses no-hitter

BASEBALL

Masconomet 9, Manchester Essex 0: Senior Will Twiss threw a no-hitter, striking out five and walking only one as the Chieftains remained perfect on the season at 12-0. Twiss carried a perfect game into the seventh and threw the first no-no in the Chieftain program since 2010.

“Will had everything working for him,” said Masco coach T.J. Baril. “He only has two walks on the season. He’s pounding the strike zone and he’s totally fine with them putting it in play with the defense we have. His approach is just to challenge guys.”

Senior Joe Klingensmith hit a grand slam in the fifth to break a 0-0 tie. Elias Varinos had an RBI single and Greg Dougherty also drove in a pair.

Saugus 7, Ipswich 5: Mike Savoie had three hits and Alex Morris pitched well for the Tigers (2-8) who had a chance to tie in the final inning but came up just short.
