Blackburn 2-hits Norwich, 11-0

Gimme Indie Rock! Nick Blackburn

Nick Blackburn, just called up from Single-A Ft. Meyers a week ago, pitched a 2-hit complete game shutout in Norwich tonight as New Britain nailed down their 5th straight win, 11-0. Rock Cats leftfielder Alex Romero continues to tear it up at the plate; already the Eastern League's Player of the Week last week, Romero has hit safely in all 4 games this week with 8 RBI. The Binghamton Mets won their game in Bowie against the Baysox, for now keeping the Rock Cats a game behind in last place. New Britain gets another chance to escape the cellar tomorrow night, when it's Pfizer Bat Night in Norwich. An appropriate joke about "wood" escapes me at the moment.

In other, less exciting news, the NHL has replaced the orange in its logo with silver, in much the same way that your team will have to replace many of your favorite players with cheaply-paid rookies under the league's new salary cap.
