Delgado baffles Bolts

TRAVERSE CITY — Starting pitching rose to the occasion once again for the Traverse City Beach Bums.

One night after Mike Devine stymied Windy City in the Bums' home opener, Casey Delgado shut down the ThunderBolts as Traverse City took a 2-0 victory on Saturday at Wuerfel Park.

Delgado threw a one-hitter over seven innings, striking out eight and walking only two. The Beach Bums' bullpen only allowed two more baserunners in its two innings of relief.

Traverse City, which has won four straight, scored both of its runs in the first inning. Both runs were unearned as Rob Benedict and Jeff DeBlieux both reached on errors and later scored.

Markus Solbach suffered the loss for Windy City even though he nearly threw as well as Delgado. Solbach allowed only two hits, walked three and struck out five in seven innings. Scott Woodward doubled and Drew Rossi — coming off a big night in contributing to Friday's win — had a hit for the only two hits for Traverse City (5-3).

Nick Latta had the only hit for Windy City (5-3), which started the series against Traverse City in first place, but has dropped into second after back-to-back losses. Traverse City, meanwhile, has moved into a tie for first in the East Division with Lake Erie after its recent streak of victories.

The two teams complete their three-game set today at 5 p.m. at Wuerfel Park with Tanner Tripp taking the mound for the Beach Bums and Travis Tingle starting for Windy City.
