For the week, the Captains hit .265 and scoring 47 runs (first in the Midwest League).
The highlight of the week in pitching was the no-hitter thrown on the home opener. Trey Haley, Francisco Jimenez, and Clayton Ehlert combined to no hit the Dayton Dragons. Haley went three innings, and allowed the only run on a wild-pitch. Jimenez and Ehlert went the final six, and retired the final 17 batters of the ball game. It was the franchise’s third no-hitter since it’s inception in 2003.
