Headline Story: FARGO — The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks concentrated all their run scoring to the first inning Wednesday night and that proved to be enough for starting pitcher Matt Tomshaw.
Tomshaw pitched 7 2/3 scoreless innings, combining with right-hander Ryan Flores on a three-hit shutout. That pitching proficiency sparked the RedHawks to a 5-0 victory against the Milwaukee Milkmen in an American Association baseball one-game wildcard playoff at Newman Outdoor Field before 1,180 fans.

Rookie Joe Ryan recorded his first career win after allowing one hit in seven innings to propel the visiting Minnesota Twins to a 3-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday.
Ryan (1-1) retired the first 19 batters he faced before Amed Rosario ended his bid for perfection by slapping a clean single to left field with one out in the seventh. Ryan, however, induced Jose Ramirez to ground out and Franmil Reyes to fly out to end the threat and conclude his evening after 85 pitches.
Ryan struck out four and did not walk a batter while making his second career start since representing the United States in the Tokyo Olympics. The 25-year-old retired the side in order in four of the five innings he pitched in a 3-0 loss to the Chicago Cubs last Wednesday. Read the full story here.
