Kane County 3, Gary SouthShore 0 – Box Score
The Kane County Cougars (3-1) one-hit the Gary SouthShore RailCats (1-3) and claimed a 3-0 win behind a gem from starting pitcher Ben Allison.
Allison tossed eight innings and allowed just one hit, a lead-off double in the top of the eighth. He only issued a pair of walks and was perfect through the first 16 batters he faced. RF Alec Olund, the only RailCat with a hit in the game, made it to third base after a fly out to right but was stranded there thanks to an inning-ending 5-4-3 double play two pitches later.
Reliever Logan Nissen came on in the ninth and retired the side in order to earn the save.
Offensively for the Cougars, 1B Josh Rolette went 2-for-3 with two doubles and two runs scored. DH Dylan Busby went 2-for-4 with an RBI.
