September 2, 2008 - CRESTWOOD, Ill. – Rockford starter Garrett Bauer’s bid to make history was spoiled by a lack of run support.

Bauer struck out eight in a complete-game loss as Windy City shut out the RiverHawks, 1-0.

Bauer (10-6), who turns 27 and ages out of the Frontier League at the end of the season, lost a complete game for the second start in a row. Bauer needed a win to break a tie with former RiverHawk Tanner Watson for the team’s all-time wins lead. Each has 23 wins.

Bauer finished the season with 151 strikeouts, one short of the league lead and five short of the league record of 156, set in 2002 by Rockford’s Jason Shelley.

Tuesday, Bauer’s strong outing was spoiled in the fifth inning, when Windy City designated hitter Amos Ramon brought home Justin Tellam with an RBI single for the game’s only run.

The RiverHawks offense was only able to muster five hits off five Thunderbolt pitchers. Catcher Joe Dempsey was the only player with more than one hit. He had a double and a single.

Rockford has not scored in 21 consecutive innings.

Starter Matt Jernstad (1-0) earned the victory for Windy City, his first career professional win. Adam Dominick, Brian McCullough, Alain Quijano and Matt Petty each pitched one inning of scoreless relief. Petty earned the save.

The two teams will meet again in tomorrow night’s season finale. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. at Standard Bank Stadium.
