Power win on Uher's two-hitter

Niagara Gazette — Zach Uher pitched a masterful game, taking a no-hitter into the ninth inning at Maple City Park in Hornell.

The bad news was Uher's no-hit bid was broken up in the final inning. The good news was he still held the host Dodgers scoreless, as the Niagara Power ended a five-game losing streak with a 3-0 win Sunday evening.

Ben Pickard scored what proved to be the winning run in the top of the fourth inning. After hitting and reaching first safely, he advanced and was later brought home on a sacrifice fly by Foley George.

The Power added two more runs in the top of the seventh inning. Cody Pentecost got on base, then later came home as the Power hit into a double play. With one more out left, Tyler Simmons singled to bring Hunter Lewis home.

The rest of it was up to Uher, who struck out eight batters while walking only two. The Freeport, NY native improved his record to 2-3 upon getting the complete game win. 

Rochester-area native Stephen Stoklosa took the loss for Hornell.

The Power (12-24) head into their final two days of the regular season, returning to Sal Maglie Stadium today for a doubleheader against the Wellsville Nitros, a set of games rescheduled from earlier this season due to weather. 

The first pitch of the first game is set for 4 p.m. with the second game set to begin at approximately 7 p.m.
