Delgado, Beach Bums blank Aviators 5-0

Casey Delgado fired six shutout frames, striking out 10, as he paced the Traverse City Beach Bums to a 5-0 shutout victory of the Rockford Aviators on Friday night at Wuerfel Park.

Delgado (7-6) took over the league lead in strikeouts with his 10 punchouts, moving his season total to 108, one ahead of Southern Illinois' Matt Bywater. He worked around baserunners in five of his six frames, but kept the Aviators off the board. He ended up tossing six innings, walking five while yielding four hits against the 10 strikeouts. It's the third time this season he's reached double digits in K's.

Traverse City's offense provided all the support he would need in the third inning.
