Goodbye No-No

Brian Horwitz singled in the top of the seventh inning, ending the Rock Cats' Glen Perkins' bid at a no-hitter.

Also, the Defenders set a franchise record tonight. Any guess as to which record they broke?

Gotta be most shutouts in a season. which I'm surprised they hadn't reached previously.

succesive innings without a run....

OK guys...it doesn't count when the answer has already been published in today's paper. But even had you not seen the story, both are great guesses.

Skip...FYI: Monday's game was the 21st time the team was shutout, a pretty obscene number. It is a team record. The previous record was 14 in 2003

Add 21 games in which they only scored one run (and won 5 or 6 of those games). Has to be some kind of record for offensive futility.

Just goes to show you the quality pitching teh team has had in 2006.
