Jamin McCann improved his record to 4-0 with a quality performance on the mound. The left-hander from East Tennessee State went 8 1/3 innings, giving up one run on eight hits, walking two and striking out five. He lowered his earned-run average to 1.93.

Alex Lagos came on after McCann gave up a one-out single to Kurtis White in the ninth inning. Lagos surrendered a single to Joe Breen, but retired the side without damage.

Wachusett starter Mike Lundin took a no-hitter into the sixth inning. Luke Reynolds broke it up with a two-out single. One inning later, the Suns struck.

Pittsfield scored four runs on five hits. The key hit was a three-run home run by Gary Tesch. Tesch, who improved his batting average to .338 after going 2 for 5, now has four home runs.

Suns designated hitter Zack Tower went 1 for 4 and extended his hitting streak to eight games. Brian Bocchiccio, who has appeared in eight games for the Suns, has now hit safely in five straight.
