HOHENFELS, Germany — Vilseck ace Kyle Krajcovic had his streak of nine consecutive no-hit innings stopped by the first batter of the game Saturday.

But he still picked up the win, pitching the Falcons to a 7-3 victory over the Hohenfels Tigers in the first game of a high school-age baseball doubleheader.

Krajcovic (3-0) allowed four hits in six innings, striking out 12 and walking four. He also had a triple and two singles in three trips to the plate.

Hohenfels rebounded to hammer the Falcons 17-1 in the second game, as the first four batters in the Hohenfels lineup went a combined 11-for-16.

The loss was the first of the season for Vilseck (5-1), which swept the Tigers at home the previous week.

In another doubleheader Saturday:
