Tim Brown, Santo Luis, and PJ Zocchi teamed up to toss a shutout as the Saltdogs blanked Fargo-Moorhead 4-0 in front of 5,074 fans at Haymarket Park Wednesday night to improve to 41-41.
Brown (8-6) went seven innings, scattering 10 singles while striking out one to earn the win. Lincoln broke the scoreless tie on a Curt Smith three-run, opposite-field homer in the last of the sixth. Smith finished the night 2-for-4 with his sixth home run and three RBI.
The RedHawks rallied the very next inning, loading the bases with one out but Brown induced a line-out double play to escape the jam with the shutout intact.
