Dalton Sawyer pitched a career-high seven innings, Tyler Hanson worked the eighth and Lance Thonvold finished with a 1-2-3 ninth at TD Ameritrade Park. It was Minnesota’s first no-hitter since Tom Windle did it against Western Illinois in 2013.
Every team needs an ace, and the Gopher baseball team relies on Tom Windle, a left-hander who may have a future beyond college.
People inside the Vikings insist they are intent on making playing baseball a part of the new football stadium. If the NHL gets salary roll backs as part of their new collective bargaining agreement, it could be big savings for Craig Leipold on Zach Praise and Ryan Suter’s contracts. Suter chartered his own plane to be part of the fundraiser for Jack Jablonski. Nice move!
