Peabody High pitcher Eddie Campbell picked a good time to throw a no-hitter.

Not only did he toss a gem in Tanners’ 2-1 win over Danvers, the win was Peabody’s first this season.

It was the first no-hitter of the Tanner senior’s career as Peabody raised its record to 1-4.

With the game knotted at 1-1 in the bottom of the seventh inning, Anthony Conforti led off with a single. Pinch-runner Christian Ploumbidis stole second, got to third on a sacrifice bunt by Jordon Anzuoni, and scored on a perfect safety squeeze bunt by Michael Tansey.

Campbell, who threw just 72 pitches, had one strikeout, one hit batsman and did not walk a batter in seven innings.

Pebody hosts Winthrop Thursday (6:30).

English 20, Everett 8

A pair of freshmen got the job done for the Bulldogs on the mound. Starting pitcher Anthony Mateo tossed the first three innings and allowed three runs on seven hits. Yordy Contreras pitched two innings in relief.

“It was great because we’re in the middle of three games in three days,” English coach Doug Mullins said. “We’re jammed up with pitching. To have two freshmen step up in their first varsity appearances on the mound was great. To see them flourish in that spot was very encouraging.”

Albert Torres hit a 3-run home-run and a 2-run double. Jomar Moreta and Clodys Parandys each hit a solo home-run.

The Bulldogs (3-1) are back at it Thursday night (7) against crosstown rival Classical at Fraser Field.

“It’s always a dog fight,” Mullins said. “They’re a very well-coached team. We know they’re going to be sound. Our guys are excited for the competition Thursday night.”

Classical 13, Malden 0

Brett Bucklin earned the win on the mound. Bucklin went five innings, fanned three, walked two and allowed one hit.

He also helped his own cause, going 2-for-3 at the plate with a pair of RBI.

“Brett came out and threw strikes,” Classical coach Mike Zukowski said. “He was able to get his outs. He only gave up one hit. He was pretty dominant on the mound. It’s been nice to see. He also did it at the plate. Brett had an all-around great game.”

Jared DeFillipo went 2-for-4 with a RBI. Nico Galeazzi, James Wilkins, Ronald Torres and Kyle Durant had one hit apiece.

Classical (3-1) takes on crosstown rival English Thursday (7).

“It doesn’t matter what the records are. It doesn’t matter if you’re 0-10 or 10-0,” Zukowski said. “These kids like to give it their all for bragging rights in the city. We’re going to get a game. We’re ready for a tough one Thursday night.”

Saugus 3, Beverly 1

Todd Tringale pitched seven innings and struck out nine. Tringale allowed five hits, including a solo home-run in the first inning to opposing starting pitcher Brayden Clark.

Jack Devereaux went 3-for-3 with a RBI. Jackson Stanton went 1-for-3 with a RBI and Zach Falasca went 1-for-2 with a RBI.

“It was a great pitching performance from Todd and a big day at the plate from Jack,” Saugus coach Joe Luis said. “Those two were the key to this win.”

Saugus (4-1) hosts Marblehead Thursday (4).

St. John’s 1, Malden Cath. 0

The difference of the game was a sac-fly from the bat of Richie Williams in the bottom of the fifth. Pitchers Matt Remley, Ryan Bradley, Joe Castrichini and Sean Letarte combined on the mound. Remley got the start and struck out four over three innings.

St. John’s (5-1) hosts Billerica Sunday (12).

Salem (3-1) visits Medford Thursday (4).
