Siller Outstanding, No-Hits Crawdads
Thursday, May 26th, 2039
The Hagerstown Suns relied on no-hit stuff from starter Wilson Siller to defeat the Hickory Crawdads 22-0 at Little Rock Fields today.

"It's quite a thrill," Siller told the media afterward. "This is a top-notch league. A no-hitter against any team in the league is something special. I can't believe I did it."

To get his name logged in the Empire Professional Baseball League records, he stopped Hickory cold and hitless, surrendering 2 walks and fanning 12 of the 29 batters he faced.

Hagerstown manager Chance Wheeless was in a jovial mode after the game, kidding with reporters that Siller "made managing easy today."

"I didn't have hardly any decisions to make like I usually do," he said. "I didn't even have to come up with a pinch hitter."

In 10 starts this season Siller has compiled a 3-1 record and a 1.91 ERA.

Rome On Top of Florida State League South
Thursday, May 26th, 2039
It's a banner year for the Rome Braves, they have won the Florida State League South.

"There's so much pride in our room and on our roster, anything but a division title wouldn't have been acceptable," said reliever Shawn Siciliano. "In the playoffs we'll just have to take it one day at a time and keep battling."

The Braves this year have battled to a 36-12 mark, which is good for the club's 4th Florida State League South title.

"I'm extremely proud of my players and look forward to seeing what we can do in the postseason," said manager Derell McCall.
