SANFORD, Maine -- Dakota Edwards no-hit the Sanford Mainers to lead the North Adams SteepleCats to a 1-0 win on Saturday night.
Edwards, of Turlock, Calif., struck out six and walked just two in leading the 'Cats to their seventh win in 12 outings this summer.
Three Sanford pitchers combined to allow just four hits, no walks and no earned runs in a game that took just 2 hours, 6 minutes to complete.
North Adams' run came in the top of the seventh.
First, Jim Haley reached on an infield error that allowed him to get to second base.
Then Dan Shea sent a 3-2 pitch deep to center field for a triple that scored Haley.
Sanford starter Ben Wessel followed with a strikeout, a groundout and a fly out to leave Shea stranded at third, but the damage was done.
As a sophomore at the University of Bridgeport this spring, Edwards went 0-2 with an earned run average of 4.67 in four appearances. He pitched 17-1/3 innings, striking out 16 while allowing 15 hits and 13 walks.
North Adams is scheduled, weather permitting, to be home on Sunday afternoon against Vermont at 4:30 at Joe Wolfe Field.
