Angels shut-out Harvard in 1-0 No-Hitter

In Thursday’s game the visiting Angels shut out Harvard 1-0 in a 6 inning no-hitter to continue their winning record. As I personally missed the game due to work, all I can recount from the fans who were there is that the Angels pitching effort was great with David P., Derek M. and Matt L. all sharing the glory. For Matt’s part, he closed with 7 batters faced in 2 innings. The nail-biter finish was due to a Harvard runner who had initially reached 2nd base on a fielding error & then stole 3rd to be in scoring position with 2 outs in the  bottom of the 6th. Matt was able to execute the final strike-out with a cut fastball that both came in on the batter and dropped off the table, which is a new pitch for him.  Another heart-stopper if I had been there. The single Angels run was scored by Matt on a key mid-game RBI by David T. who jumped in to assist the team since so many regulars were away for various reasons. Overall a close game with both teams very well-matched. That’s what makes baseball great.
