FRANKLIN, Wis. — The Skinny: Chicago LHP Thomas Dorminy electrified with a near-flawless start on Thursday night, as the Chicago Dogs blasted the Milwaukee Milkmen, 7-2. Dorminy rode a no-hitter into the seventh inning and struck out a season-high nine batters. Meanwhile, the Chicago offense rallied for seven runs, including Victor Roache’s third home run of the series, to take a 7-0 lead by the fifth inning. Jalen Miller and Jake Cousins shut the door on the game — and the series — from the Dogs’ bullpen.

Losing Pitcher: RHP Dylan Baker
Star of the Game: Thomas Dorminy. At one point from the second inning to the sixth, the first-year Dog set down twelve consecutive Milkmen. An Adam Walker seventh-inning home run broke up the southpaw’s no-hit bid.
