Coffman Twirls Gem, RedHawks Win 4-0

Broc Coffman threw a four-hit shutout and Ruben Salazar broke up a scoreless game in the sixth inning with a two-run double to help the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks secure a 4-0 win over the Schaumburg Flyers at Alexian Field on Tuesday night.
A leadoff walk in the first to Antoan Richardson got the action started for the Flyers. With one out, Richardson stole second and third base on consecutive pitches to put a runner in scoring position with just one out. After a walk to Victor Ferrante, Felix Jose grounded into a double play to end the inning.
All was quiet until the top of the sixth. RedHawks right fielder Mike Coles hit a single to lead off the inning. Zach Penprase hit into a fielder’s choice with Coles being called out at second. Nic Jackson then hit a liner back to starting pitcher Carmen Pignatiello. A failed rundown resulted in runners now being at second and third with still only one out. With the infield drawn in, Salazar ripped a double down the left field line scoring Coles and Jackson to make the score 2-0. With Salazar at second base, Jeremiah Piepkorn hit a soft single to center field scoring Salazar giving the RedHawks a 3-0 lead.
The Flyers looked to answer in the bottom half of their inning. With two outs, Victor Ferrante got on with a two out error. Felix Jose was up next, and delivered a base hit to right field, giving the Flyers runners on the corners. Richard Mercado gave RedHawks starter Broc Coffman a long battle at the plate, but ended the inning with a strike out looking.
With reliever Jon Huizinga on for Pignatiello in the ninth, the RedHawks added some insurance with a two out base hit by Coles to drive in second baseman Carlo Cota to make the score 4-0.
Coffman pitched his second complete game shutout of the season, limiting the Flyers to just four hits, while walking four and striking out four. Coffman now stands at 9-5 on the season.
Pignatiello went 6.1 innings in the loss, giving up three earned runs on five hits, while striking out five. With the loss, it drops Pignatiello to 6-9 on the season.
The Flyers now stand at 34-44, holding the fifth spot in the division. The RedHawks are at 42-34 on the season, third in the Northern League.
The series continues tomorrow with LHP Ryan Gehring (1-0, 6.35) getting the start for the Flyers, with RHP Garry Bakker (5-5, 6.26) taking the hill for the RedHawks. First pitch is at 7:05
