Sheboygan, WI - It was a chilly night at the ballpark Tuesday. But if there was one person who was nice and hot, it was A's starting pitcher Eric Schmitz.
Schmitz struck out 10 Oshkosh Giants and carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning, as his offense did the rest by plating 10 runs and winning 10-1.
Schmitz didn't allow a hit until the sixth inning when Giants player-manager Luke Gajewski ripped a shot to left field that landed just inches infront of sprawling left-fielder Mark Wanner.
The only Giants offense was a solo home run in the seventh.
Jake Arens was hot at the plate for the A's, collecting four hits, including a double.
The A's scored two in the first, one in the second and thrid, three in the fourth, and added three more in the sixth to jump out to a 10-0 lead before the Giants home run in the seventh prolonged the game.
The A's, 10-2 overall, are back in action tonight. Wildwood Park will be hosting two games this evening, as the Branch Blaze and Plymouth Flames will square off at 6:30 PM, followed by the A's and Cleveland Wildcats at approximately 8:15 PM. The A's no-hit the Wildcats in their meeting last week.
