Blogs > Burney's Bytes

Burney's Bytes will focus primarily on the local preps sports scene, but will also touch on some college and pro athletics, mostly in regards to athletes who hail and have played high school sports in Oakland County. My goal for the blog is to be conversational and anecdotal, a more relaxed and free formal take on high school athletics than you see in regular game day coverage.

Almost Perfect

North Farmington pitcher Kevin Turner came moments away from pure perfection on Wednesday and even though he didn't achieve it, he still recorded quite the impressive outing on the mound, nonetheless.
Turner's one-hitter led the host Raiders to a 10-0 demolishing of Detroit King Wednesday in non-league prep baseball action.

Striking out 8 batters, while not surrendering a single walk on the day, Turner was as efficient as he was dazzling, only facing 15 opposing batters the entire contest.
He gave up his only hit of the game on a single to King's leadoff batter in the final inning of play. Unfazed by the blemish on his once-flawless effort, Turner picked the runner off first and then promptly registered a strike out to finish out the affair.
One of the area's most pleasant surprises this season, North Farmington improved its record to 8-2 with the victory.
The win from the rubber is Turner's second of the campaign.
