Brown Throws Complete-Game Shutout Against Mammoths
UTICA, Mich. — It was a pitcher’s duel Thursday evening at the ballpark as right-handed pitcher Cody Brown threw a complete-game shutout for the Utica Unicorns, while Austin LaDoux hit his first career USPBL home run in the top of the ninth inning to lead the Unicorns (9-9) over the Westside Woolly Mammoths (7-8), 1-0, at Jimmy John’s Field.
In his first career shutout, Brown struck out eight batters and walked just one. He was matched pitch-for-pitch by Woolly Mammoth’s RHP Josh Mason who struck out seven batters in his first complete game.
Offense was at a premium for both squads, however Ethan Wiskur was the only player to record a multi-hit game, finishing 2-for-4 with a double.
The Unicorns finished with one run, five hits, and no errors while the Woolly Mammoths had six hits and one error.
