With the "Game of Thrones" premiere this past Sunday, it's only fitting that a Dragon is in the news. No word on whether Khaleesi was in attendance.

South Hadley (Mass.) junior Alex Dragon earned the opening day start — his first career varsity start — and made the most of it, throwing a no-hitter against Mahar Regional (Orange, Mass.) in a 10-0 victory.

The Tigers offense went to work early, spotting Dragon six runs in the first inning, and the lanky hurler took care of the rest.

Dragon struck out nine and walked one, according to the Daily Hampshire Gazette.
