If the Mallards needed any incentive tonight, St. Cloud provided it. The River Bats came into Warner Park with the most wins in the NWL, sitting atop the North Division with a sizzling 9-3 mark, nearly unchallenged at this point in the season. The Mallards on the other hand, were looking to reach .500 for the first time this season, after dropping their first four games and standing at 5-6 prior to the contest. As easy as it has been for the River Bats so far, the Mallards executed with such precision Tuesday night, it seemed like Madison was the first place team, and St. Cloud was the team looking to even their record. Behind a sensational pitching effort from Andy Sigerich, and solid hitting across the board, the Mallards cruised to a 6-0 victory in front of 3,219 fans at Warner Park Tuesday night.

Sigerich was virtually unstoppable through five innings, not only holding the River Bats scoreless, but keeping them hitless. The no hitter was broken up with a single in the top of the 6th inning for the River Bats first hit. Sigerich (2-0) had three strikeouts, allowing just three hits in seven innings of work.

Sigerich got plenty of support from Mallards hitters. Kyle Murphy went 2-for-3 for the Mallards with an RBI, and Ryan Rogowski was a perfect 3-for-3 knocking in two runs. Jared Johnson also came through for the Ducks, giving them a key pinch run scoring double in the sixth.

The Mallards will attempt to sweep away the River Bats and move above the .500 mark for the first time tomorrow night.
