Virginia Bats Go Silent in 5-0 Loss
The Ontario Blue Pirates went home winners at Farmers Market Stadium, thanks in large part to starter Kazushige Sasaki. Sasaki silenced the Virginia Diamond Club, enabling Ontario to grab the 5-0 win. The 4th-place Diamond Club have dropped 5 straight games.

The Blue Pirates got a big at-bat from second baseman Ken Straughan. For the game, Straughan was 4-4 with a triple, a double, and 2 singles, while adding 3 RBI. In the bottom of the second, with runners on 2nd and 3rd, he stroked a 2-run single. His 70th hit of the season gave Ontario a 2-0 lead.

"Everyone's trying too hard," said losing manager John Heinz. "If we learn to relax, we'll be fine."
