Storm Hall Claims 200th Victory
Tuesday, May 10th, 2011
It was a special day at The Shelterhouse for Springfield's John Hall. The Storm ace logged his 200th career win against the Predators. In the 13-6 decision Hall tossed 7 innings, surrendered 11 hits with no walks and 1 strikeout.

"I'm real fortunate that I had the opportunity to play with such good players during my career," said Hall. "I just couldn't have drawn it up any better. I'm glad I did it in this uniform, too. Springfield is a great organization to play for."

Lifetime Hall has compiled a 200-116 record with a 3.17 ERA in 435 starts.

Matthews Fashions Shutout Against Reapers
Tuesday, May 10th, 2011
South Bend Silver Sox starter Melvin Matthews really did a number on the Rochester Reapers today, shutting them out 4-0 on 4 hits in a complete game victory. He issued 2 walks and had 4 strikeouts.

"We didn't have good at-bats," Rochester manager Robb Clarke. "I don't make excuses, but when we were playing the game, our energy didn't show. That comes from either extremely good pitching or extremely lousy hitting and seeing as our team has a bunch of good hitters, I have to tip my cap to Matthews."

To date Matthews is 3-2 in 8 starts with a 3.83 ERA and has 25 strikeouts in 56.1 innings.

Canton's Hodges Out 3 Months
Tuesday, May 10th, 2011
When Leslie Hodges was hurt against the Dayton Dawgs, the Canton Kernels were hopeful that the injury was not serious. However, it proved to be more severe than first thought. The 39-year-old starting pitcher suffered shoulder inflammation throwing a pitch in yesterday's game. Team doctors told BNN today that Hodges would miss 3 months of the season.

To date Hodges is 3-1 in 8 starts with a 2.61 ERA and has 47 strikeouts in 48.1 innings.
