Blank Helps Express Clinch South Division 1st Half Title

Trent Blank (Baylor) made his first start on the mound for the Express, who have lost a couple of key starting pitchers to injury and summer school. Blank did his job though in his first start of the season to earn the win. Blank pitched seven innings and gave up only two runs without walking a single batter and striking out five as the Express clinched the South Division first half title.
