The Vermont Fighting Sioux pitching staff gave the fans an evening that
they'll never forget by tossing a combined no-hitter! The tension started to
build around the 6th inning.  By the 9th inning the crowd was electrified.
Vermont had only 6 hits for the game.  
 
The victory went to Jack Flaherty(12-13) who went 8 innings, allowing no runs.
Oliver Drake recorded his 1st save.  The loss was charged to Pablo
Lopez(10-7).  
 
'You probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than this
happening,' said Flaherty who got credit for the win, 'I don't expect it to
sink in for awhile.' he said. 'You know, it's hard to say who was better, the
starter or the bullpen!'

First baseman Hunter Dozier launched 2 homeruns and had 3 RBI and Justin
Verlander struck out 10 batters as the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs bested the
Vermont Fighting Sioux 8 to 4 at Fighting Sioux Field.
 
Dozier provided much of the offense.  He delivered a solo blast in the 2nd
inning, popped a two-run clout over the fence in the 3rd inning, laced a
one-base hit in the 5th inning and hit a single in the 9th inning.  Vermont
was out-hit by Lehigh Valley, 16 hits to 6.  
 
The win went to Verlander(2-0) who allowed 4 runs in 8 innings. Brett
Anderson(1-3) was given the loss.  He got hit pretty hard, allowing 11 hits
and 3 walks in 7 innings.  
 
'I had my good stuff today.' Verlander said. 'As the game went along I started
to get the feeling that I was going to strike out a bunch of hitters.'

Vermont doubles up Iron Pigs behind Correa's perfect day at the plate

WEB GEMS- Bot 2nd: Jason Heyward robbed Martin Maldonado of an extra base hit.
          Bot 5th: Danny Santana robbed Max Kepler of an extra base hit.
 
In a good matchup it was the Vermont Fighting Sioux 6, the Shawnee Crows 4 at
Fighting Sioux Field.
 
Vermont had 3 runs cross the plate in the bottom of the 4th inning when they
came up with 4 base hits.  The key at-bat was by Martin Maldonado who excited
the crowd when he cracked a two-run shot.  Vermont finished with 15 hits
while Shawnee ended up with 7.  
 
Brett Anderson(1-2) was the winner allowing 3 runs in 5 and 2/3 innings.
Anderson got relief help from Kirby Yates who gained credit for his 8th save.
The losing pitcher was Walker Buehler(0-1).  He was unable to control the
Vermont offense and allowed 12 hits and 2 walks in 5 and 2/3 innings.  
 
'I didn't have my best stuff but sometimes you just get lucky,' Anderson said,
'this was one of those times.'
