PETTIFORD HURLS TRAPPERS TO 3RD STRAIGHT SHUTOUT

By now, the Medicine Hat Blue Jays are probably plenty sick of playing the Salt Lake Trappers.

Cecil Pettiford hurled the Trappers' to their third straight shutout victory, and fourth in a row overall over the Blue Jays, Tuesday night. Salt Lake has now won ten consecutive games.Pettiford pitched eight innings and gave up seven hits, but Medicine Hat was never able to capitalize.

Tim Clark and Kevin McMullen belted home runs for the Trappers - McMullan had a three-run shot in the third while Clark ripped a two-run blast in the fifth.

The win allowed Salt Lake to stay two games ahead of Helena in the Pioneer League's Southern Division. Helena comes to Derks Field for a three-game series on Friday.
