That's all that you could say about the Chapmanville Regional High School team's 11-0 dismantling of Logan in Wednesday night's Class AA sectional tournament at Logan High School's Roger E. Gertz Field.
The Tigers put on a display of near flawless baseball and put themselves into position to win their first sectional title since 2002.
Just check these facts out for size:
n Chapmanville won it in dramatic fashion as Matt Collins ripped a walk-off, grand slam home run off Logan relief pitcher Ronnie Abbott in the last half of the fifth inning, ending the game early due to the 10-run mercy rule. The Tigers plated eight runs in the frame to turn a close 3-0 ballgame into the 11-0 blowout.
n Tigers' pitcher Zak Martin tossed a no-hitter in the abbreviated game. He fired five innings of scoreless ball, striking out five and walking one. Martin faced the minimum 15 batters as one Logan runner was wiped out on a nifty double play and the other runner was gunned down by Chapmanville catcher Hunter Podunavac on an attempted steal.
n Chapmanville made three outstanding defensive plays. Second baseman Adam Dingess ranged back to shallow right field and snared a Thomas Adkins pop-up over his shoulder in the fourth inning. Also in the fourth, Logan's Ross Easterling bunted and was tossed out as Tiger first baseman Collins scooped up the ball and fired to pitcher Martin who covered first and just did beat the Wildcat runner. Martin also started a 1-6-3 double play in the second inning.
It was a stunningly easy win for the No. 9-ranked Tigers (24-9), which had opened the sectionals with a 14-4 win over Scott on Tuesday night at Logan.
Chapmanville is just one win away from the title but knows it has a long way to go.
If No. 4 Logan (19-9) is able to beat Scott in Thursday night's elimination game, weather permitting, the Cats would battle with Chapmanville again on Friday at 6:30 p.m.
If this sound all too familiar you are right.
It's like deja vu all over again.
This time, the Tigers would like a different outcome.
In last year's sectional tourney at Chapmanville the Tigers routed Logan 10-1 and were just one win away from winning the crown. But Logan rallied back to take two straight games to win its fifth straight Class AA sectional title and eighth in a row dating back to its Triple-A days.
Chapmanville coach Eric Ellis said he reminded his team about last year's sectional tourney collapse and used it as motivation.
"We came out focused and I challenged the guys. I said, 'Think back to a year ago. A lot of you guys were on that team. That feeling that you had last year you don't want to feel like that again,'" Ellis said. "They came out focused and ready to go and I'm proud of our kids."
The grand slam by Collins was his team-leading eighth homer on the season. He has one more dinger than teammate Podunavac.
"Zac Gresham was sitting in the dugout and I said, 'Walk-off right here.' I don't know, maybe it was a lucky call," Ellis quipped.
Ellis praised Martin's pitching. He was 4-2 on the season with a 0.67 ERA heading into the ballgame. He had thrown 31 innings with 41 strikeouts and just 16 walks. Martin allowed just three earned runs all season. His already stellar ERA just went down even lower after last night's performance.
"Zak's been throwing the ball extremely well lately," Ellis said. "He had his slider going really well tonight and was ahead of the hitters. We also made some great plays behind him. Adam made the great catch, we had the double play and we had the nice play that Collins made on the bunt where he threw to Zak."
Chapmanville banged out 12 hits in the win.
Leadoff shortstop Josh Mahaffey was 3-for-4 with one RBI.
Podunavac went 2-for-2 with one RBI. He went into the game with a .495 batting average, the best on the team. Collins was 2-for-4 with five RBI. Martin went 2-for-3 with one RBI.
Evan Brown had a bunt single RBI. Caleb Toparis and Dingess also had hits.
J.R. Blevins was Logan's starting pitcher. He went 3-2/3 innings and allowed three runs and seven hits with five strikeouts and two walks. Abbott was rocked for nine runs and six hits in just 2/3 of an inning of work.
"J.R. is a great pitcher," Ellis said. "But we did a good job, stayed in there and didn't swing at a lot of bad stuff. We've got a good hitting baseball team and when we swing at good pitches we're going to hit."
The Tigers went up 1-0 in the bottom of the first with and RBI single to left by Collins.
Martin then ripped an RBI single up the middle off pitcher Blevins' glove to make it 2-0 in the third.
Then in the fourth, Chapmanville chased Blevins off the mound. Podunavac greeted Abbott with an RBI single to left to make it 3-0 Tigers.
In the fifth inning everything seemed to go right for the Tigers.
Chapmanville then got it started with Martin's infield single.
Jared Holtzclaw then reached base safely as he laid down a bunt which was fielded by Logan first baseman Josh Motto and thrown high to second baseman Ross Easterling, who was covering.
Dingess then singled to load up the bases.
Then it was Chris Miller who was safe on a Logan error which scored two runs to make it 5-0 Chapmanville.
Mahaffey followed with an RBI single to up the lead to 6-0.
Brown's RBI, bunt single then made it 7-0.
With runners at second and third and one out, Podunavac was intentionally walked to juice the bases.
Toparis then grounded into a 5-2 fielder's choice play as Logan got the force out at home.
That set the table for Collins who hit the walk-off grand slam.
"In that last inning we were able to get a lot of things going," Ellis said. "If we can do some hit-and-running and some bunting and get some men on base and put some pressure on them we felt like we could have made some good things happen. That's what we did."
Ellis praised the well-placed bunts by Holtzclaw and Brown.
"We got a couple of nice bunts down, including a nice squeeze. What happened to us the last two games happened to them tonight," Ellis said. "That's been the story this year. We've had games where we have executed and we've had games where we didn't. When you get into tournament play you have to execute. You have to field bunts and throw people out and we worked on that and bunts a lot last weekend. We also worked on first-third defense and we executed that the other night. Tournament games are won and lost in those kinds of situations."
Ellis said he thought his team was loose as the Tigers went into the sectionals as the underdogs.
"I think we were (loose)," Ellis said. "They were the conference champions and they are the favorites to win the tournament. Before the season started everybody had them penciled in. They are a great team but when we execute we feel that we can play with anybody."
The Tigers know a lot of baseball is left to be played this week.
"We better than anybody know that this tournament is far from over," Ellis said. "We've been in this position before, including last year. The positive thing is that we have a day off after an emotional game like this. We can practice tomorrow, relax and go at it again on Friday. We know that it is far from over and there is a lot of work left to do yet."
The Tigers haven't had much success with Logan over the last decade.
This season, Logan ripped Chapmanville 13-4 at Ted Ellis Field and rallied back to top the Tigers 4-3 at Logan just last week with two unearned runs in the bottom of the seventh.
"I'm proud of our guys because they caught a lot of flak over last week's game," Ellis said. "This is a good bounce back for them. We know that we are a good baseball team and Logan is a good baseball team. Them and Scott will be a tough game tomorrow. Tournament games are tough. We know that we are really going to have to battle really hard. We just want to win the next one."
