Famed pitcher Korrey Gareau made every out by himself for the Duncan Gord Closson Forest Products squad in its Nanaimo Fastball League season-opener.

Gareau struck out the side five times for a total of 15 Ks, but didn't pitch a no-hitter, allowing one hit in Duncan's 10-0 whitewashing of Baker Supply Tuesday.

"We're pretty fortunate to have two talented pitchers,'' said team spokesman Joe Dilalla.

Both Gareau and Rick Smith have considerable experience at the highest level of fastball.

Gareau got into such a rhythm he even returned the favour to Baker Supply by striking out during all three of his own plate appearances after being forced to bat with Duncan having the minimum number of players.

The 12-hit Duncan attack was led by catcher Trevor Gicas, who went three-for-four, scored three runs and had two RBIs.

Aaron McQuarrie was two-for-two with two runs and an RBI while North Cowichan-Duncan Sports Wall of Famer Bob Court launched a three-run homer in a six-run Duncan second inning and added another hit and one more run later in the game.

Daryck Bell got into the act with two hits, a run and an RBI. Trevor Vanderbyl converted one hit into two RBIs and Dave Devana and Dennis Young each managed a run and a hit.

Duncan is back in action again Thursday at the Wheat Sheaf field in Cedar.
