Casey Crosby was the story in this one with 5 innings of no hit ball with only a walk to go with 6 K’s. Robert Waite allowed a double in his 4 innings, the only hit that the Caps would allow. Gustavo Nunez was 3 for 3 with a walk. Billy Nowlin also had 3 hits. Bryan Pounds doubled twice.

    I noticed that Ian Snell struck out 13 consecutive MudHens on Sunday. Ouch.

      There don’t seem to be many Snells in the world; yet Ian Snell seems to be unrelated to the Nate Snell who pitched for Detroit in the late 80s.

      Oddly enough, in 1912-13 there were a Charlie Snell on the St Louis Browns and a Wally Snell on the Red Sox, neither of whom appear to be related.

      I am predicting that in about 75 years, there will be 2 MLB players with the last name Snell, who nonetheless are unrelated…
