Former ICC All-Region 23 pitcher Chris Hilliard is one win away from history after the Cyclones defeated the Aberdeen IronBirds 2-0 on Friday.
Hilliard (9-1) threw eight innings of shutout baseball, giving up two hits and issuing one walk while striking out four batters to earn his league-leading and record-tying ninth win of the season. His earn run average (ERA) now falls to 3.77 on the season.
The Ecru native will have another regular-season start and a chance to set the new franchise record for wins in a season before the McNamara Division Champions start postseason play next month.
