HECTIC EIGHT-HOUR DRIVE, THEN A NO-HITTER
Independent Baseball Insider by Bob Wirz, Vol. 12, No. 22, July 31, 2014

A left-handed pitcher with a great story is Alex Szymanski (pictured), who threw a seven-inning no-hitter in his first start for the Can-Am League's second year Trois-Rivieres (Canada) Aigles. No-hitters always are fascinating, but it is the back story on the 27-year-old from Londonderry, NH that could keep Hollywood script writers busy for some time.

Szymanski had made only one previous start since undergoing Tommy John elbow surgery exactly two years ago today until he shut down the New Jersey Jackals in the second game of a doubleheader at Yogi Berra Stadium.

PEREZ SHINES IN CAPITALES 5-2 WIN
Leondy Perez threw eight shutout innings.

Quebec’s starting pitcher Leondy Perez (pictured) set the tone for the Capitales with a strong outing that helped down the Trois-Rivieres Aigles 5-2.

Perez tossed eight shutout innings and allowed just four hits while striking out nine batters. The win gives Perez four on the year. The run support came in the fourth inning when 1B Rene Leveret hit a solo home run to put the Capitales up 1-0. Quebec doubled their lead in the fifth when DH Sebastien Boucher singled home SS Jonathan Malo. Boucher, along with Leveret and 2B Mike Provencher, registered two hits in the game.

JACKALS TOP BOULDERS IN MATINEE
Dunigan drives in all three runs

The Jackals withstood a late Boulder rally and won on Wednesday afternoon. RF Felix Sanchez led off the bottom of the first with a double and scored on a sacrifice fly by DH Joe Dunigan (pictured) later in the frame. Dunigan followed that up with a two-run home run in the fourth inning.

Rockland CF Antone DeJesus hit a two-RBI single in the eighth, but two men were left on.

In the 2014 American Association All-Star Game tonight, the South All-Stars beat the North All-Stars, 7-0.

All four Can-Am League pitchers went to the mound in the game as for the South LHP Sean Bierman (pictured) of the Rockland Boulders tossed one shutout inning while LHP Mike Antonini of the New Jersey Jackals hurled 2/3 of an inning of scoreless work.

JACKALS TAKE MONDAY WIN
Seven runs in three innings in comeback

The Jackals took the finale of a five-game series 7-2 at Yogi Berra Stadium. 1B Steve Nikorak hit an RBI single in the fifth inning for the Jackals’ first run, and CF Alonzo Harris had an RBI single for the inning’s second run. Four more runs scored in the seventh, including a two-RBI single from C Tony Caldwell (pictured).

INF Ryan Adams was 3-for-3 in his first game with the Jackals. RF Felix Sanchez was 2-for-5. LHP Anthony Ferrara struck out three in six and 2/3 innings for the win.
