The Montreal Metros rolled to an easy 7-0 win over the Toronto Ducks at Ducks Stadium today. Leading the way to victory was starter Lou Bricknell, who shackled the Ducks and held them scoreless on a 3-hitter. He also struck out 13 on the effort with no walks, making the win his best outing of 2016.
“This is what every pitcher wants to do when they go out there,” Bricknell said in his postgame press conference.
This year Bricknell has 8 wins and 6 losses and a 2.63 ERA. This was his first complete game shut out this year, though he had one other shut out victory on July 23 against Battle Creek.
