Henry throws complete game four hitter in win
The Edmonton Cracker-Cats right hander Mike Henry threw a complete game four hitter Thursday night enroute to a 4-2 victory over the Joliet JackHammers at TELUS Field.
Henry (5-1) retired the final eight batters in the game and allowed only one extra base hit.
Cracker-Cats DH Kyle Nichols nailed his 15th Northern League home run and his 6th as a Cat this season. It was a two run shot in the third inning off Joliet starter Derell McCall, now 5 and 4 on the year.
The 20 and 19 JackHammers now return home to Kansas City. The 20 and 18 Cats move on to Fargo for a three game weekend series.
