Catz Split, Pilots Pitcher Tosses No-hitter in Game 1
June 13, 2015

By Seth Goldberg | Jersey Pilots

In the first game of a double header, Pilots pitcher, Connor Lehmann finished off the Lehigh Valley Catz throwing a no-hitter in a 3-0 win. Lehmann tallied 12 strikeouts in a dominating performance. All game, Lehmann had a sharp curveball working for him that led to 10 swinging strikeouts out of the 12 total.

Just three men reached base on the afternoon, with the first coming to lead off the game, but Macky Price was stranded at 2nd after two strikeouts and a fly ball to centerfield. Through the game, Lehmann retired the side in order 4 times out of 7 innings.

After the game, Lehmann credited his teammates for making plays behind him and fielding everything cleanly. Lehmann also said that he was thinking about throwing a no-hitter all day, even before the game started adding, "I was thinking before the game, ‘what if I throw a no-hitter today?'" and Connor certainly had the stuff to back it up.

But Lehmann couldn't do it alone, he needed some help from the Pilots offense. Jersey got on the board in the second when Drew Deangelis walked and stole second. After a strikeout by Greg Kocinski, Ryan Jennings knocked an RBI double scoring Deangelis and putting the Pilots on the board. In the 5th, the Pilots loaded the bases with no outs, but just one run scored when Lehigh Valley starter Benjamin Bortz threw a wild pitch and Tyler Heisch raced home. Jersey added on a run in the 6th when David Young came around to score on an RBI double off the left field fence by Tommy Trotter.

As good as the first game was for the Pilots, the second game was that good for the Catz. The first batter of the game Anthony Gaetenaillo reached on an error and came around to score on a sacrifice fly by Steven Cohen. And the Catz didn't stop there. Back to work in the 3rd, the Catz scored another run on a double play after Macky Price reached on an error and scored another on an RBI single by Nick Todero. The Catz added two more runs in the 7th on an RBI single by Steven Cohen and an RBI triple by Anthony Rinaldi.

The Catz took the second game of the doubleheader 6-1, but the big story came in the first game when Connor Lehmann threw a no-hitter as the Pilots won 3-0.
