COLLINS TOSSES NO-HITTER FOR SAINTS
Blake Collins pitched his way into the Manistee Saints record books on Saturday, pitching a no hitter in the first game of a Great Lakes UBL double-header against the Michigan Collegiate Braves at Rietz Park as the Saints won 2-1. Collins struck out 7 and walked 4 in his gem while a pair of 7th inning errors cost the Saints a shut-out.
Jon Eno doubled home the first run for the Saints in the 2nd inning and a perfect bunt by Kenny Frieswyk brought home Jon Acton with what proved to be the winning run in the 4th inning.
The Saints dropped the nightcap by a 9-5 score with Roddy MacNeil charged with the loss; Lucas Richardson collected a triple and a home run in the game.
On Sunday the Saints lost a pair of mercy rule games to league leading Oil City on the road; Zach Perry and Josh Riggs were charged with the losses.
The league championship series will be played next weekend at Mt. Pleasant with the Saints playing the league leader at 11 a.m. in the sudden death play-off.
