PORT HENRY -- Runs were at a premium Saturday afternoon for both Ticonderoga and Moriah.

So were hits.

Hunter Denno tossed a one-hitter to lead the Sentinels to a 2-0 victory over Moriah in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference non-league baseball.

Denno's performance overshadowed a two-hitter by the Vikings' Nick Popp.

The only runs of the game came in the top of the sixth inning when John Breitenbach reached first on a strikeout and wild pitch and Adam Pond rapped a two-run homer.

Denno struck out 12 and walked four, while Popp finished with seven strikeouts and seven walks.

"It was a great game to be part of," said Moriah coach Casey Nephew. "It was fun."

Mike Corson's fifth-inning single was the lone hit for the Vikings off Denno.

Moriah loaded the bases, with two out, in the fifth only to have Denno escape trouble.
