For Red Wing, Andy Gibart, Josh Thygesen and Dustin LaRue combined for the no-hitter. Gibart started and lasted five innings with two strikeouts. Thygesen tossed two frames with a pair of strikeouts, while LaRue also threw two innings with four Ks.
In Dundas on Wednesday, Matt Neuger, Jeff Brisbois and Jeremiah Leiviska teamed up for the no-no. Neuger started and tallied 12 strikeouts with one walk in five innings. He faced the minimum (15) through the fifth. Brisbois and Leiviska each faced three batters, striking out two and three, respectively.
