Laredo Lemurs pitcher Matt Way of Sitka retired 15 of the final 19 batters he faced last night to earn his sixth win in 12 starts.

Way went 7 innings in a 13-4 victory over the Amarillo Sox in independent pro ball in Texas. He allowed 4 hits, 5 walks and 2 runs.

He also struck out a season-high 12 batters and lowered his ERA to 2.79 in 77.1 innings.

This was the second time this season that the Alaska lefty fanned at least 10 batters in a game.
