CLEBURNE, Tex. — In one of the most complete performances in franchise history, the Chicago Dogs routed the Cleburne Railroaders, 12-0, on Thursday night at La Moderna Field.
Starting pitcher Tyler Palm dealt a shutout in seven innings of work. The 6-foot-9 righty allowed just one hit all night, a Zach Nehrir single. Jonathan Cheshire pitched the final two innings, and Cleburne finished the evening with no runs on just two hits, both singles.
The Dogs offense set a new season-high for hits, with 18, bringing the series total to 36 runs on 46 hits in three wins at Cleburne. Ryan Lidge set the tone with a first-inning home run, and Cody Bohanek blasted one in the second inning.
Josh Altmann continued his scorching start to 2023 with two doubles and a triple, bringing his RBI total to 20 in just 12 games.
The now 9-3 Dogs featured at least one hit from every batter in the order and remain in first place in the East Division.
