Jack Gannon Tosses No-Hitter, NewarkPilots Sweep Geneva Red Wings in Doubleheader

NEWARK, N.Y. - The Newark Pilots returned to Historic Colburn Park yesterday to host

their Finger Lakes rival in the Geneva Red Wings for a doubleheader. On a hot and

humid July evening, the 600+ fans in attendance had no idea that they’d be witnessing


It was a pitcher’s duel early on in Game One, as neither side scored a run through three

completed innings. After Jack Gannon (St. Peter’s / Transfer Portal) got out of a jam in

the top of the 4th inning, Jack Pawlowicz (St. Bonaventure) delivered at the plate,

smashing an RBI-Single into right field, scoring Gage Boatman (East Central) the first

and only run of the game. Gannon continued his dominance striking out the final batters

of the fifth and sixth innings, leaving him with only three outs needed to join the history


After totaling 97 pitches through six completed innings, It was uncertain whether

Gannon would return for the final inning to complete the No-Hit-Bid. Without any

hesitation, Pilots Head Coach Daniel Steve (TC3) sent his ace back out to the mound to

chase history. Gannon quickly retired the first two batters on three pitches, leaving only

one batter between him and Destiny. With a 1-2 count on Tyler Cerame (FLCC),

Gannon threw a breaking ball in the dirt, causing Cerame to chase, and Boatman

applied the tag to complete the No-Hitter.

The Pilots would later rally to win Game Two 8-3 for their third-consecutive win.

The No-Hitter for Gannon was the fifth in the history of the PGCBL and the first in

program history for the Newark Pilots.
