Nick Fanti tossed his second consecutive no-hitter and struck out 16 to lead Hauppauge over Huntington, 6-0, at Bethpage Ballpark yesterday in Suffolk League V baseball.

Fanti faced the minimum 21 batters. He picked off the only baserunner he allowed after giving up a leadoff walk in the fifth.

"He's constantly ahead in the count and that's because he has a great feel for all of his pitches,'' Eagles coach Josh Gutes said. "He worked mostly off his fastball today, but his breaking ball was just as good.''

Fanti (3-0) has allowed two hits and struck out 38 in 19 innings this season. Bryan Seltenreich and Billy Huber had RBI triples and Fanti lined a long sacrifice fly for Hauppauge (4-0).

Brandon Kustek went 2-for-3 with three RBIs.Floyd 1, Brentwood 0: Rob Brust's two-out single in the ninth drove in Mike Bradley to lead Floyd (3-4) in League I.
