Lehigh commit and CB West pitcher Julio Ermigiotti

Central Bucks West senior Julio Ermigiotti thought that he was going to have a good outing on Monday.  "I felt like I had something extra. I felt really good," Ermigiotti told Paul Roberts of SV Sports.  The 5'8, 195-pound right-hander wasn't good.  He was great.  Ermigiotti tossed a perfect game with nine strikeouts in a 3-0 victory over District 3 runner-up Wilson at Villanova Ballpark.  The Lehigh commit cruised through seven innings while throwing just 80 pitches, 59 for strikes.  "I mostly stayed with my fastball. I noticed that they were pretty late on it so I just kept pounding away with that," said Ermigiotti.  His fastball is 87-90 mph.  He also mixed in a slider.  The (19-9) Bulldogs had won 12 of their previous 14 contests.  This was the first no-hitter of Ermigiotti's high school career.  He improved to (6-0) this season with a 2.17 ERA.  The (20-6) Bucks scored all three of their runs off Kent State commit Matt VanOstenbridge in the 4th inning.  A groundout to third by No. 9 hitter Jack Hogenauer got CB West on the board.  Kevin Bukowski followed with a 2-run single to left field.  He provided two of the Bucks' six hits.  Catcher Max McGlone went 1-for-3.  The Army commit has been friends with Ermigiotti since they were little kids.  "Our mothers never want this to end. I'm just trying to make every moment I can with him now," replied Ermigiotti.  He explained why Lehigh is a great fit for him.  "I just love the atmosphere there and all the coaches were very nice to me. It was the perfect school for me academically too," said Ermigiotti.  He also discussed his favorite MLB pitchers, musical artists, and teachers.  CB West is moving on to the state quarterfinals in Class 6A.  The District 1 champions will face District 12 champ Father Judge on Thursday.  "I think we can go all the way, honestly. I don't have any doubt in our team right now," stated Ermigiotti.
