Lincoln Saltdogs

The Lincoln Saltdogs smacked eight doubles and cruised to an 11-0 win over the Texas AirHogs on Bark in the Park Night at Haymarket Park.

Saltdogs (46-46) starting pitcher Joe Bircher followed up his complete game, 152-pitch outing from last week with another impressive start.  The lefty from Omaha tossed six shutout innings and limited Texas (24-68) to just two hits.  He struck out a season-high eight batters and did not issue a walk.

The Saltdogs try for a series-clinching win on Monday.  First pitch is at 6:45 PM
